Abstract

This paper presents the preliminary ideas for the improvement of the cultural offerings’ standard and fruition of the Museo Civico Castello Ursino in Catania. In conceiving the project, the requests of the European Commission, the European Digital Agenda, and the Directive on Public Sector Information (PSI) have been taken into consideration. In particular, the digitisation of cultural heritage (embedding museums, libraries, and archives) and its accessibility on a large scale. Among the aims of the project, there are the creation of a digital archive; 3D digitalisation of the museum’s collections and their online accessibility; and the use of immersive and interactive solutions for a better audience involvement.
