DescriptionAfter "Virtual History - Roma" success, Mondadori presents the second issue: "Virtual History- The Last Supper", which allows to move inside a three-dimensional re- construction of Leonardo's masterpiece and to discover its secrets. The App utilizes a number of specially-developed hi-tech features to create a fresh understanding of this work of art.
Da Vinci's bold use of perspective, the reactions of the apostles and the realistic lighting and setting blend to give form to a series of interactive devices that give us a new understanding of the great Renaissance master.
Using the iPad, we can enjoy a direct, literally “hands-on” relationship with Da Vinci’s The Last Supper. The painting is presented complete with all the damage it has suffered during its beleaguered history, but maintains its remarkable expressive power As if in a time machine, we can go back to the 15th century and climb Da Vinci's scaffolding to examine the still-white stucco, look at his paints and preliminary sketches, and re-live one of history's most extraordinary creative moments.
The “Bubble Viewer” immersive solution turns the iPad into a sort of telescope that allows us to enter the painting, to experience the extraordinary perspective created by Da Vinci in an all- round projection, to sit in front of the apostles and even move behind them to see the view from the windows in the background. This is a totally new interactive experience, a completely new way of discovering one of the greatest masterpieces in the history of mankind.
