Michelangelo’s David

On 27th February there was a meeting, sponsored by YIL, involving light and new technologies at the Academy of Fine Arts in Naples.

It was showed at people a research born started in the contest of the course of “Digital applications for visual art” coordinated and curated by the professor Donato Maniello (gloWArp.com Studio).

The installation, entitled “Michelangelo’s David”, is the demonstration of how new technologies can play a fine role for the enhancement of cultural heritage of a nation.

To achieve and prove such result, in this project it was used a particular technique of augmented reality called video mapping with the aim of reevaluating the replica in scale of the world famous “David” by Michelangelo, sculpture present in the building of the Academy of Fine Arts of Napoli.

The action of reevaluation is not to be considered as an attempt to substitute the peculiar value of the work itself.
