7. How to digitize culture

Digital technologies open up new avenues for preserving cultural content and making cultural heritage more accessible to a wider range of people. Museums and cultural institutions that embrace technology may provide unique visitor experiences, as well as allow the public to see exhibitions remotely and examine the content that isn't on the show.

Digital technology and the internet have given cultural heritage a fresh lease of life. Citizens can now access cultural content over the internet. 

Cultural heritage places are being brought back to life by new technology. Visitors to virtual museums can examine art pieces in context and interact with things or venues that are otherwise unavailable to the general public. 

When it comes to exhibits, plays, ballet, and opera, digital art also incorporates new art experiences; virtual reality has become the primary instrument used to design such encounters. We may now sit on a living room couch and be in the thick of a Vivaldi concert at the Fenice in Venice or surrounded by a Van Gogh painting. We may now sit alone in front of the art and experience what it's like to be in the midst of creation. 

Many major museums are attempting to capitalize on this technological shift by digitizing their collections and archives in 3D, a new and effective marketing tool. They will be able to provide clients with simple access to their collection if they have an internet connection. That means you'll be able to get a close look at the Mona Lisa without being distracted by other tourists or study Michelangelo's David sculpture in depth. 

Use cases and best practices 

In times of confinement, museums, opera houses, and tourist sites all across Europe and the world are making more and more content available online to make self-isolation and social distance more pleasurable and calming for everyone.
