With 2020 being the 500-year anniversary of the artist’s death, Magister Art created a new cultural project titled Magister Raffaello which was presented by art historian Jelena Jovanović in Deep Space 8K at the Ars Electronica Center during the Ars Electronica Festival.
Designed and produced to celebrate the 500th anniversary of Raphael’s death (1483 – 1520), one of the greatest artists of the Renaissance, Magister Raffaello is a new cultural project by Magister Art, digital innovators in cultural heritage content creation, production and promotion. Responding to challenges of digital transformation and social innovation, Magister Raffaello explores the potential of new technologies, combining the high scientific value with the constant experimentation of new languages and media, to create an ‘augmented narration’ and a ‘total’ cognitive experience, aiming to accessibility of knowledge and the inclusiveness of widest ranges of audiences.
Magister Raffaello has been selected by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs among the initiatives to be promoted by the global network of Italian Embassies, Consulates and Cultural Institutes. The participation in Ars Electronica Festival took place in collaboration with the Italian Cultural Institute in Vienna. (Specific project references available at magister.art)
