Indiana University recently announced it’s cooperative agreement with the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, Italy to digitize in 3-D the museum’s entire collection of 1,250 pieces of irreplaceable Greek and Roman sculpture. The initiative aims to have all of the sculptures freely available online by 2020.
During the announcement ceremony, IU President Michael A. McRobbie stated “this is a historic and hugely ambitious project, one that will generate unparalleled opportunities for scholarly engagement with one of the greatest cultural institutions in the world and its legendary collections.”
The 3-D digitized images of the sculptures will be stored in DPN. You may see the full press release at this link.
