Thanks to “Brancacci POV”, the prototype of a hybrid experience, the virtual visit (lasting 45 minutes) will lead the visitor to discover what is hidden inside the matter and in the art of the work. With the help of a guide, you can virtually visit the monument, carry out small tasks, wear the “clothes” of one of the artists while putting his hand to work, and discuss and exchange ideas and opinions on what is gradually being discovered. The experience lasts about 45 minutes.

Registration on EVENTBRITE is required to participate in the workshop and virtual tour.
