Art4sea Project @ BMTA 2023!

3D Research presented ART4SEA and CREAMARE, two projects co-funded by Creative Europe of which it is the coordinator, at the 25th edition of the BMTA (The Mediterranean Exchange of Archaeological Tourism) held in Paestum between 2nd and 5th November.

The BMTA’s goal is to promote Archaeological Parks and Museums, encourage tourism in archaeological sites, facilitate marketing, increase economic opportunities and have positive employment effects. To achieve these objectives, several conferences and workshops were organised during the event, strengthening interactions between professional companies, professionals, travellers, schools, and tourists.

ART4SEA and CREAMARE were presented as virtuous initiatives! Within the Art4sea project, efforts are being made to contribute to the Decade of Ocean Science for sustainable development combining art, creativity, science and technology to raise public awareness toward a respect for the marine environment.

Presented by Marco Cozza (3DR) and Roberto Rotondo (SOP), ART4SEA and CREAMARE had a prominent presence at the stand of MiC (Italian Ministry of Culture) – Soprintendenza Nazionale per il Patrimonio Culturale Subacqueo.

3D Research and the Superintendence presented the project and allowed numerous visitors to test a virtual reality application developed as part of the CREAMARE project. This application simulates a gamified dive near the ancient wreck in the Otranto Channel, at a depth of about 700 metres. Users on board an underwater vehicle, had to identify and recover all the types of amphorae found.

The video of the event is available on the BMTA YouTube channel.
