Abstract

The virtual experience of Geguti Palace will be presented in this paper in order to demonstrate how it’s possible to offer a deep understanding of a space from abroad by absorbing reality into a virtual environment. Starting from the digital documentation and 3D survey of this medieval royal palace, developed by the Department of Architecture of the University of Ferrara and the Tbilisi State Academy of Arts, in collaboration with the National Agency for Cultural Heritage Preservation of Georgia, the paper will stress the VR issue focusing on several hardware devices and software platforms for digital content management. This case study will contribute to the analysis of further exploitations of Virtual Experiences for the Cultural Heritage field.
