"Museo del Corso" opens today, 1 February, in Via del Corso, Rome. The
museum is based on the idea and experience of the European project,
MOSAIC - "Museums Over States And vIrtual Culture," - and will
represent one of the MOSAIC Service Centres able to experiment with
the solutions and services proposed by the project for direct contact
with the general public. 

The "Museo del Corso" is the first virtual exhibition in Italy to
exploit the numerous possibilities offered by virtual reality
technology in the field of cultural heritage. A visit can be made to
the virtual theatre in the polyfunctional area, where it is possible
to dive into a number of cultural visits through Rome and its most
important historic monuments. It is also possible for the visitor to
go back in time and see Ancient Roman sites as well as monuments in
their reconstruction in different historical areas. 

Starting from the end of April, to coincide with Rome's birthday,
there will be an exhibition at Via del Corso using all the functions
of the technological infrastructure.
