Press Release (RTS): La Fondation Bodmer met à l’honneur Dante Alighieri, 700 ans après sa mort

The temporary exhibition “The Making Of Dante” honours Dante Alighieri, the Italian poet and author of the divine comedy, 700 years after his death.

The Fondation Martin Bodmer wanted to make visitors ask themselves: how should we read Dante? Visitors are allowed to interact with content In order to provide a new digital experience.

People involved in this collaboration: Yoann Givry (Fondation Bodmer) under the scientific curatorship of Professor Michael Jakob, Dr Paola Allegretti (Commissariat La Fabrique de Dante), Professor Jacques Berchtold and Nicolas Ducimetière. Marie Coulomb (La Société Secrète), Carlos Sanchez Witt and David Bugat (Atracsys Interactive).

Everyone has worked together on this multi-faceted interactive application which is a central piece in the exhibition space and lets visitors dive into historic texts, pictures or play some games, all about the famous poet.

“For several years, Atracsys has accompanied us to each of our temporary exhibitions. It has thus become a habit for regular visitors to our museum to be able to enjoy some additional exposure thanks to the touch table.
For this exhibition called [The Factory of Dante], which will last nearly a year, we have made available to the public dozens of works to consult in high definition and by “leafing”, from the medieval manuscript in Latin and full of marginal notes, to the contemporary comic strip presenting Dante’s eternal Comedy in a different light”.
