The Italian Institute of Heritage Science of the CNR, and the Georgian National Museum are glad to invite you to the final presentation of the Bilateral project Italy-Georgia 2021-2022 “Technology-enhanced strategies for Heritage valorization in Georgia”.

Funded by the Italian National Research Council and Shota Rustaveli National Science Foundation, the Bilateral project produced the Vani Virtual eXperience, a digital exploration in the historic city of Vani, Imereti region, western Georgia, to admire the wonders of the Past, especially referring to the archaeological area of the so-called mosaic floor temple and its findings – our main case study.

Located about 41 km southwest from the regional capital Kutaisi, Vani is an area with continuity of life. The richness of the documentary framework and the variety of the historical and archaeological problems offered today by the ancient city reveal an incredible potential that constitutes a truly significant heritage and a first-level attractive element by making use of new technologies applied to Cultural Heritage.

In this light, we had the idea of providing citizens and tourists with a digital interactive tool capable of enhancing and promoting knowledge of the territory, its history and evolution over time. 

Participate in the final presentation to discover where to find Vani Virtual eXperience!

The event is open to anyone interested in bilateral cooperation, Georgian heritage and digital technologies.
