Capitoline Museums: technology for museum communication
More in-depth news on the most important sculptures exhibited in the museum and on the paintings in the Pinacoteca Capitolina (Capitoline Picture Gallery) can be accessed on all smartphones equipped with NFC (Near Field Communication) technology.
Simply point your smartphone at the transparent card (tag), located next to the caption of the artwork or at its base, to load and display detailed information on the screen, with references to web pages for special topics of study or explanation of technical terms. Texts are available in both Italian and English.
This information system is particularly useful in the historical halls, where traditional printed signage is reduced for the presence of panels and totem poles.
The project began in 2011 after an agreement between Samsung Electronics Italia and Sovraintendenza di Roma Capitale and Zètema Progetto Cultura.
