New technology for archaeological museums: three case studies on the Mediterranean coast

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The archaeology/technology combination has long been accepted with the second being seen tobe at the service of the study and conservation of the first. Much less immediate and recent is the combination between the archaeological museum and technology for communication. Certainly, becauseof its ability to express dynamic and immediate information, new technology, if well integrated in the exhibition and well calibrated with the presence of original objects, can be a very effective support to the public’s appreciation.The paper aims to provide some examples that seem to adequately describe good integrationpractices between the authentic and the mediated, between the original and the virtual, between thesubstance of the archaeological finds and the evanescence of their reconstructions.
