MNAT participates in the Accessibility Conference of Heritage Cities

1 February 2024

The National Archaeological Museum of Tarragona (MNAT) has participated this Thursday February the 1st in the conference on Accessibility in World Heritage Cities held at the Palau de Congressos de Tarragona. The director of the MNAT, Mònica Borrell, along with representatives of the Giravolt project of the Catalan Agency for Cultural Heritage for the digitization of heritage, presented the paper "The potential of 3D technologies in the accessibility of heritage: from 3D printing to virtual reality".

The presentation was an opportunity to share details of the project of digitization and creation of 3D models of the MNAT collection and sites, with a special focus on the work recently developed in the Centcelles complex. In this location, Giravolt created the 3D model of the monument and the mosaic of the dome, a project that also proposes a series of applications both for the knowledge, research and conservation of the monument and to improve the experience of the visit, with initiatives such as the use of virtual reality glasses to see the mosaic up close.

The conference was organized by the Group of World Heritage Cities of Spain, the City of Tarragona and the ACS Foundation, and have allowed during the January 31st and February 1st to know good practices in accessibility of heritage to the different cities declared World Heritage of UNESCO in the State. The Museum Network of Tarragona and Terres de l'Ebre has also been responsible for one of the speeches featuring good practices of two of the museums in the network. In addition, several workshops were held focusing on accessibility.
