Regium@Lepidi 2200

RegiumLepidi

The Regium@Lepidi Project 2200 started in 2013 thanks to a collaboration between Duke University and Lions Club Reggio Emilia Host Città del Tricolore. The aim of this project is to enhance the cultural heritage of the city of Reggio Emilia, Italy through the promotion and recognition of its historical significance. More specifically, the project entails the creation of a new virtual museum and IT room designed within the archaeological museum. This initiative is one of the first scientific virtual reconstructions, in Italy, of a Roman city that will be developed through an array of digital methods which include the acquisition of existing data and their reproduction in computer graphics and virtual reality. Regium@Lepidi App is a macro-scale representation of the ancient land- and city-scape meant for a collective visualization by means of a stereo projector. Forum@Lepidi App is a fully immersive scenario focusing on the ancient forum area. This application was developed for an individual experience through the Oculus Rift head-mounted display.
