As part of the permanent itinerary of the Archaeological Museum of Udine, Mobile 3D produces the interactive multimedia video "Francesco di Toppo" and its accessible variants (LIS, simplified language and subtitling).
The protagonist, a very important figure in the political and cultural life of 19th-century Udine, was very active, especially during the last part of his life, in the field of archaeological research. Famous are his archaeological discoveries within the Aquileian area. Thanks to the ancient artifacts found in the area, Francesco di Toppo increased the already rich collection created by his father Nicolò and laid the foundations of the archaeological collection of the Civic Museums, which has been located since 1906 at Udine Castle.
The installation, placed a few steps from the entrance, thus aims to tell the visitor about the provenance of the collection through the protagonist's narrative, anticipating for the visitor the contents donated by Francesco di Toppo to the collection.
The following is an excerpt from the accessible version in simplified language.
The realization of the multimedia product required the use of greenscreen filming techniques and graphic animation. Drawing from an important collection of iconographic material, the acting by actor Massimo Somaglino was enhanced with animated backdrops and other graphic elements functional to the understanding of the story. The video here exemplifies the process adopted.
