Embark on a journey to the Golden Age of Alexandria, Athens, and Venice!
This brand new experience has been developed for the needs of the Art Explora Festival and allows you to immerse yourself in the past at the heart of 3 iconic cities at the height of their splendor:
- Athens during the Classical era (5th century BCE)
- Alexandria at the twilight of the Ptolemaic dynasty (1st century BCE)
- Venice during the Italian Renaissance (15th century)
The VR modeling of these 3 cities is derived from the worlds of the Assassin's Creed video game franchise developed and published by Ubisoft.
To create the most authentic worlds possible, extensive research is consistently conducted prior to the creation of each Assassin's Creed game by Ubisoft's research teams, in close collaboration with external experts from around the world.
This experience was developed in 2017 by Ubisoft using data from Iconem, a startup specialized in 3D scanning of heritage sites. Ubisoft has created an original virtual reality experience that provides a realistic and emotionally rich immersion at the heart of six monuments that have been destroyed or threatened by recent conflicts or natural erosion in Syria, Libya, and Iraq.
Age-Old Cities has been readapted by Ubisoft specifically for the Art Explora Festival.
This experience explores the extraordinary story of one of today’s most celebrated Baroque artists: Artemisia Gentileschi. We follow her journey as she navigates a world where women have virtually no rights, and becomes one of Europe’s most celebrated and in-demand painters of her time. Artemisia painted herself into posterity within her own lifetime – this story is about how she rose up against the odds and continues to capture our imaginations today.
