Google Academy Launches Joint Project with the Trinity-Sergius Lavra ,Russia

   


With the help of the Street View technology, the interior and exterior territories of the Lavra have been completely digitized. People all around the world are now able to make a virtual journey to the monastery and have a look inside its churches, examine world-famous icons painted by Andrei Rublev, and a silver shrine with the Holy Relics of the Venerable Sergius; and also to learn more about the construction and the development of the monastery after having visited this digital exhibition.

The news has reported that Google has digitized hundreds of museums all around the world, including the Palace of Versailles, the State Hermitage, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and the National Gallery of Australia in Canberra.

“We began this in 2011,” Luisella Matsa, Project Chairwoman of the Culture Academy, stated. “Back then there were only fourteen museums which participated in what is now the most famous project of the Culture Academy: the Google Art-Project. 

Now we have hundreds of partners in fifty countries. The main mission of Google is to make every piece of information available to all. The Culture Academy is a non-governmental project. All of our partners are non-governmental organizations: museums and other cultural institutions, which also put efforts into making culture internationally more desirable.”

The State Hermitage Museum was one of the first to take part in the Google Art-Project. Only recently a joint project with the largest literature museums has been implemented. 

Those museums are the State Literature Museum, the Pushkin Museum, the Mayakovsky Museum, the Bulgakov Museum, and others. Eight museums are now available to Internet users around the world. With the help of the “Literary Moscow” interactive map, everyone is able to learn about places associated with the above mentioned writers all by themselves.
