ViViBo! a multimedia and interactive Virtual Tour project to explore the University of Padua's heraldic collection

From 25 to 27 October 2023, the XII Atelier Héloïse – European Network on Digital Academic History, took place in Turin, on the theme Digital Approaches to University Cultural Heritage. Objects, Collections, and Places of Knowledge Production.

The Héloïse conference, organized by CISUI – Centro Interunivesritario per la Storia delle Università Italiane, brought together leading experts in the history of Italian and foreign universities. It also provided an opportunity to present the latest results from the Bo2022 database concerning the lives of students at the University of Padua from its founding to the present day.

MobiLab contributed by presenting the initial outcomes of the ViViBo! project, which offers a multimedia and interactive digital experience to explore the coats of arms at the Bo Palace.

ViViBo! allows for the exploration of the University of Padua’s extensive heraldic collection, both on-site and remotely, through a Virtual Tour.

The project, initially conceived as a social impact activity (or third mission) of the Department of Historical, Geographical and the Ancient World – DiSSGeA of the University of Padua, is coordinated by Prof. Maria Cristina La Rocca in collaboration with the Centre for the History of the University of Padua – CSUP.
