PROIETTA technologies allow for the creation of astonishing projections for museums, historical buildings, archaeological sites. In this type of projects, the educational and informative potential of our creations is particularly favored, but visual impact is never sacrificed.
Through video mapping, it is possible to create content that interacts with works of art. Videos can have an analytical-explanatory nature, with pointers indicating specific elements of a work, illustrating its details and meanings. Alternatively, or in combination, visualizations can be more recreational, with characters from a painting, for example, coming to life and moving from within the frame to the surrounding spaces. It is always possible to match a video with an audio, which can contain narrating voices and any background music.
Video mapping offers additional possibilities in the field of recreating historical environments inside museum rooms or for projections on three-dimensional models, on which animations can be created with characters from the past who move around and carry out their tasks.
Virtual museum guides can be created using rear projection technologies on plexiglass cutouts. These guides, achievable through PROIETTA standard silhouettes, can prove particularly effective when customized and employed to recreate historical characters who can narrate stories or provide information to the audience.
Retroprojection on semi-transparent screens allows the creation of visualizations with an effect similar to that obtained through holographic techniques. Projections (static or in motion) are designed to be observed from a particular point of view, from which it is possible to create, within a chosen environment, the illusion of the bodily presence of individuals, animals, or objects. Imagine, for example, a room inside a natural history museum where there is a reconstruction of the skeletal remains of a prehistoric animal. Through holographic rear projection, it will be possible to bring forth a visualization of how the animal would have looked when it was alive, right in front of the reconstruction.
Interactive wall and floor systems can be utilized to create playful and educational experiences targeted towards younger museum visitors. The content, developed based on carefully designed paths by museum staff, aims to stimulate and facilitate the discovery of artworks.
FIRE and WATER EFFECTS can recreate particular atmospheres related to historical or archaeological situations. Think, for example, of a museum space where artifacts found on the seabed are displayed; the water effect can recreate an underwater atmosphere within the environment. The fire effect, on the other hand, can be used to simulate the flames of a fire that occurred in the distant past, involving the objects or environments onto which it is projected.
The projections made with PROIETTA gobo projectors provide extraordinary possibilities for operations of high archaeological interest. Thanks to this technology, it is possible, for example, to recreate the original colorings of a classical statue on its surface, without the need to create specially painted physical copies. In a dimly lit room, the artifact can be alternatively illuminated with both traditional lighting and the gobo projector, which will recreate on the bare stone the original colors of the lost painting. Mapped projections with gobos or video mapping can also be used to recreate lost frescoes and to fill in gaps in paintings on canvas or wood panels.
Several of the described technologies can also be utilized in archaeological sites that have dimly lit indoor environments or during evening outdoor tours after sunset.
Spectacular effects of coloured illuminations on ancient buildings can also be seen from a great distance thanks to the technologies provided by gobo projectors and colour-changing spotlights. Gobo projectors, especially when using mapped gobos, are capable of producing specific and customized visualizations on large surfaces (colored images, symbols…). On the other hand, color-changing lights are particularly suitable for creating evocative chromatic atmospheres, even ones that shift and change.

Creating an arrangement where technologies are discreetly and elegantly integrated into the environment is part of the service that PROIETTA is committed to providing. Especially in contexts such as museums, archaeological sites, or places of worship, it becomes necessary to seamlessly integrate these solutions, making the necessary equipment nearly invisible. Proietta offers totems that allow projectors, speakers, cables, players, and supports to be concealed behind elegant and discreet structures.
