Digital technology offers the possibility of creating a "remastered" Studiolo, a virtual space in which both visual and acoustic elements can be improved compared to previous attempts at representation. At the same time, the historical uncertainty about numerous details in the arrangement of the objects in this collection requires a high level of flexibility in the digital remix, allowing the programming of a customizable virtual environment.
