Travelling through the past and present to define our future.
Italian culture along with art, architecture, music and food have made Italy great in the eyes of the rest of the world. Have you ever wondered how these masterpieces from the past have shaped today’s present, and how they can continue to be a source of inspiration in the future?

Three hundred years ago, Italy’s “Grand Tour” was a journey made mainly by wealthy young people to experience the beauties and artwork of Italian cities and culture to find that inspiration that revolutionised the modern world. Today Google re-invent it and made for everyone.

The Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen was among the first to use the Art Camera to digitize a series of artworks, including the Portrait of Armand Roulin by Van Gogh.
