The first version of the Brera Cloud, designed to improve the teaching of art in schools, was presented by Centrica – which developed it – on the occasion of the Milan Digital Week, on 15, 16 and 17 March
It could only be the Pinacoteca di Brera to host the first presentation of the Brera Cloud, which made it possible to visualize some of the Pinacoteca’s masterpieces in every detail, comparing them, measuring them, and discovering the correlations between the detail of a painting and the details of other paintings, displayed through an interactive timeline.
In short, Brera Cloud is designed to bring art teaching beyond to a level of excellence in schools and research institutes; it’s also a tool available to all art lovers.
In the presentation that took place in Milan during the Digital Week, the guest stars were precisely the paintings, from the “Dead Christ” by Mantegna to the “Marriage of the Virgin” by Raffaello, from the “Kiss” by Francesco Hayez to the “Cena in Emmaus” by Caravaggio, passing through other immortal canvases such as “Ritrovamento del corpo di San Marco” by Tintoretto, the “Pity” by Giovanni Bellini, the “Cristo alla Colonna” by Donato Bramante, the “Portrait of Laura da Pola” by Lorenzo Lotto.
Brera Cloud is based on the Centrica Platform, thanks to which the important Uffizi Touch Cloud project has already been realized.
