“Visioni impossibili - Botticelli, Leonardo e Raffaello: nuove tecnologie per vivere l’arte” is a special exhibition in Milan. There aren’t original paintings but only digital reconstructions created by HaltaDefinizione, specialized in hight definitions recording. Are giant screens and multi-touch good tools for a better understanding of paitings? yes. Interacting is more efficient then watching, enlarge a painting, discover details and get some information from it is more usefull than reading a small label on the wall. Original paintings remain masterpices but mobile devices are able to guide us discovering magnificient aspects. Is also important that the visit doesn’t end in the museum, but remains visible at home, so HaltaDefinizione developed an app for a virtual discover of the “Last Supper”.
Is possible walking in an exhibition while are you eating pop-corn in a theatre? yes! But is this kind of movie-exhibition a good experience? In my opinion the aspect that I most appreciated is the storytelling, the possibility that somebody explain story and secrets behind paintings, but digital instruments offer much more opportunities to understanding art, for example, virtual reconstructions, comparisons between different versions, enlargment on details, overlap with laser inspections etc… each of them was absent in “Leonardo Live”, That was a good way to view the exhibition but not enough to create a real experience.
