[Virtual Musems] Etruscanning 3D

Abstract :
The application has been developed within “Etruscanning” EU project (Culture 2007 framework), focused on the investigation of new digital visualization techniques and communicative formats to re-create, restore and present the original context of Etruscan tombs. The tomb n.5 on Monte Michele in Veii (Rome) have been studied with the purpose of creating a virtual environment that describes the archaeological stratigraphy and the excavation of the site and present it to museums general public. A new framework (MAVRA: Multi-Angle Virtual reality Application) has been developed. It is based on the use of parallel video tracks with different contents, real and virtual, but with a common storytelling and an identical camera animation, obtained through « camera tracking » techniques. Visitors can switch among the video tracks, have an enhanced experience of the context and interactively have access to « side stories » going deeper in the contents.
