This is a critical period for the enjoyment of cultural heritage due to the very serious limitations imposed by the pandemic and this is particularly true for a tactile museum. The Museo Omero has therefore responded by turning to technology to create this very important initiative instead of just waiting for better days. With “A zoom on art”, the museum wants to show that it can become “the best” in any times.
