In July 2014, the final application of the Monte Michele application has been installed in the Villa Giulia, the National Museum of Italy for Etruscan Art.  The system is implemented as a large screen and touch pad, next to the glass case that contains a selection of remains of Tomb number 5 at Monte Michele.

The application allows the visitor to see the tomb as it is today, as it was during excavation and as it probably was at the moment it was built.  The application is built as an interactive movie that plays those three different visualisations simultaneously, plus interviews with Francesca Boitani, who directed the excavations of the tomb.

The application shows also interviews with the archaeologist (photo: Eva Pietroni)

The application had been shown already at the Digital Heritage Expo (Digital Heritage Conference in Marseille, 2013) organised by V-MusT.net, click here for a description and more images.
