What is it about?
Digital Technologies for Historical and Cultural visualization are transforming the ways that scholars

Lab at Duke University, Università Iuav di Venezia, the University of Padua, and Venice International University are collaborating on a Summer Workshop that will train Art, Architectural and Urban Historians with the digital media that can enhance or transform their research questions and their capacity to communicate narratives about objects, places and spaces to the public.
