Restoration efforts can only delay the decay, but not stop it.

Thanks to state-of-the-art technology, cultural treasures can at least be preserved digitally for posterity. Experience with
Venice Revealed by Grand Palais Immersif and Iconem, a 3D reconstruction of the city and discover it from a new perspective. Walking through walls and discovering what is hidden is the dream of all Venice lovers.
