LucaVanin - It can have the same connotation of untruth in the west; just depends on context (and who's paying!) In Entertainment, of course, no one worries about superficial truth. Even (especially?) in Reality TV. What matters is the universal truth that stories can deliver. That is the real litmus test of truth.
Dolly Bhasin 's curator insight, June 1, 2013 1:06 AM

Excellent article, a must ready for digital story tellers of the 21st century!

Academics to create 1,000-year evolving model of Venice as the Venice Time Machine | GizMag.com

Academics to create 1,000-year evolving model of Venice as the Venice Time Machine | GizMag.com | immersive media | Scoop.it

Today, Venice is regarded as one of the prettiest cities in the world. If you've ever wondered what it looked like in the past, however, an ambitious project may soon be able to show you. The Venice Time Machine wants to digitize the city's vast archive and create a 1,000-year evolving model of it.

 

École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) is running the project in partnership with the University Ca’Foscari of Venice and support from the Lombard Odier Foundation. According to EPFL, "The diversity, amount and accuracy of the Venetian administrative documents are unique in Western history."

 

It is estimated that Venice has over 80 km (50 miles) of shelving that contains more than 1,000 years of administrative documents. Many of the documents are very delicate and are thought to be hand-written in a variety of languages evolving from medieval times to the 20th century.

 

The Venice Time Machine aims to digitize these documents and create an online repository through which individuals can search and browse. This would mean that historians would no longer need to visit Venice and its State Archive in order to view certain documents, as they must currently do.
