The value of memories

The project provided for the production of a short film made with machinima ( meaning "machine cinema") tecnique, used for making videos and films in tridimensional animation, not requiring a rendering elaboration but exploiting in  direct take environments and virtual world characters, lasting about twelve minutes, on 3d plataform Second Life and set in the Roman  Bologna during the Augustan epoch. The virtual sets  used the procedural models produced by Cineca / CNR and already used in the project MDC (Museum of the City).


Earthquake and seismology research addresses fundamental problems in understanding the Earth's internal wave sources and properties, thereby aiding society in the management of natural hazards, energy resources, environmental changes, and national security. VERCE is supporting this effort by developing a data-intensive e-science environment to enable innovative data analysis and data modelling methods that fully exploit the increasing wealth of open data generated by the observational and monitoring systems of the global seismology community.

Virtual Rome

Virtual Rome is a project coordinated and directed by Maurizio Forte (up to December 2007) and Sofia Pescarin for CNR and Luigi Calori for CINECA. The project involves the use of a virtual reality system for accessing contents, like a real in-progress laboratory about ancient landscape, with an updatable interactive view that can be integrated with other projects related to the Roman landscape.

Virtual Skené

The project deals with the virtual reconstruction of an ephemeral building from Hellenistic Egypt, Ptolemy II's banquet pavillon (around 280.B.C.), that is only known through a written source. The reconstruction is mainly based on the studies published by archaeologist E.Calandra between 2008 and 2010, which differs from previous hypothesis and collects suggestions from various architectural, artistic and iconographic contexts, paying particular attention to the symbolic use of spaces inside the building.


VOA3R is the innovative research project for digital libraries and stands for: "Virtual Open Access Agriculture & Aquaculture Repository: Sharing Scientific and Scholarly Research related to Agriculture, Food, and Environment". The general objective of the VOA3R project is to improve the spread of European agriculture and aquaculture research results by using an innovative approach to sharing open access research products. That will be achieved by carrying out innovative experiments with open access to scientific agriculture and aquaculture contents and by developing and providing services that integrates existing open access repositories and scholarly publication management systems by means of a federation approach.


VPH-Share will develop the organisational fabric (the infostructure) and integrate the optimised services to:

 expose and share data and knowledge   jointly develop multiscale models for the composition of new VPH workflows , facilitate collaborations within the VPH community.
