A scanning campaign conducted in the summer of 2023 has meticulously recreated the intricate details of both the Scrovegni Chapel and its typically inaccessible crypt.
Powered by cutting-edge Italian technology from Hidonix, this virtual escapade promises an unparalleled encounter with Giotto’s genius.
Informative panels will narrate the tale of how Giotto’s artistic prowess inspired the exceptional cycles of 14th-century frescoes, leading to the UNESCO recognition of Padua – Urbs picta.
