An experience where visitors will be able to understand how the digitization of Cultural Heritage can make a work of sculptural art immune to time. Masterpieces such as the Giovinetto di Motia or the Dancing Satyr come to life reproduced in full-scale 3D. The head of Octavian Augustus returned to Centuripe after 84 years on display.


The space, inaugurated in November 2022, stems from a project co-financed by Invitalia and the Ministry of Culture within the Cultura Crea intervention line, a result of the partnership between the Fondazione Federico II and Forma Rei Onlus, to which C&C has provided all the Apple devices for the development of technological innovation in the cultural field.


Each visitor will enter the Infinity Room and find themselves in a soft game, an immersive puzzle of images, a single work repeated endlessly to get lost in a dimension without space or time. Introduction to the second room, in which a latest generation 3D scanning system will digitize the visitor’s body in 6 seconds to immediately create a single digital identity that can be used as an avatar to access the Metaverse or as a digital reproduction that fixes the memory of one’s face as a young man, or again, as a bust in eco-sustainable material with highly technological 3D printers.


"Applying the technological process of detecting sculptural forms -" declares Giorgio Gori, founder of Forma Rei Onlus, "which has allowed us to digitize over 2000 works of international sculptural heritage to the visitors of Palazzo Reale, it fulfills the mission of informing about the real potential of technological innovation at the service of human creativity and providing each individual visitor with the digital memory of their own form".
