The project of digital image capture on the masterpieces of the Galleria dell'Accademia of Florence has been recently completed. Thanks to this careful work many paintings and sculptures are now displayed online in ultra-high definition as we have never imagined: every single part of the work can be enlarged for close-up viewing and reveal unimaginable details!
The project involved more than 75 great works in the collection, including large altarpieces by Orcagna, Perugino, Bronzino, a selection of musical instruments, sculptures and the clay model of the Rape of the Sabine Women by Giambologna.
This extraordinary digital imaging project has two goals: to monitor the present state of conservation of the works and to allow the public to enjoy them in a new way. There will be new pages on the Galleria’s website to display the paintings in ultra-high definition, with innovative tools for teaching and learning at a distance, making it a virtual museum.
