The "Studiolo" of Federico da Montefeltro in Virtual Reality

"Студиоло" Федерико да Монтефельтро в его дворце в Урбино (Ла Марке, Италия).
Сам дворец - маленькое чудо света. Говорю как очевидец.
Часть портретов великих мыслителей (в пересчете на вторую половину XV века) действительно там присутствует, часть находится в других местах.

This video shows , in a short time, the realization of a sophisticated interactive and multimedial application made by the Physics Laboratory of the University of Urbino "Carlo Bo", Italy. This computer-application has been programmed in order to show a virtual 3D reconstruction of the entire Studiolo of the Duke Federico da Montefeltro (1422-1482): the fantastic small inlayed room located in the heart of Frederics Ducal Palace in Urbino. Realized true to scale, the application allows us to move freely inside the Studiolo, and to observe several three-dimensional reconstructions, such as objects and musical and scientific instruments, all represented on the walls of the Studiolo. With this application any detail of this fascinating enviroment could be explored: from the wonderful inlayed decorations, to the pictorial cycle of Illustrious men, until the polychrome ceiling adorned by symbols of Frederics war-enterprises.
