Virtual Rome

Virtual Rome

Siggraph Conference,
Las Vegas, USA
August 2008

Created as part of the Rome Reborn interactive learning tool and installed at the 2008 Siggraph Conference in Las Vegas, Virtual Rome was a 3D digital model of the anicent city that featured sound and music by Illustrious Company.

Installed by designer Sebastijan Jemec, Virtual Rome was part of an international initiative called Rome Reborn, whose goal was to create 3D digital models illustrating the urban development of ancient Rome from the first settlement in the late Bronze Age (c. 1000 B.C.) through to the depopulation of the city in the early Middle Ages (c. A.D. 550).

In partnership with the University of Virginia and the Virtual World Heritage Laboratory.
