The Aldo Moro University of Bari in Italy has launched an interesting initiative aimed at reinvigorating and enhancing Puglia’s cultural heritage in other ways, thanks to the use of the metaverse.
Puglia’s cultural works enter the metaverse or the first time in the world, the most iconic cultural works of Puglia will be simultaneously digitized and brought into the NFT world. Among the various works, the first “digital library of Italian culture” will be created using Non-Fungible Tokens. The operation took place in Bari on 26 May in the Santa Teresa dei Maschi complex. This represents the beginning of an epochal turning point. Culture, as well as university life, will open the door to new, more immersive digital experiences. Blockchain technology is changing the way of thinking and reinventing existing processes, giving rise to a parallel universe, a world that is certainly more inclusive in many respects. Staying in the university sphere, many aspects will be revolutionized over time. Lectures, courses, conferences, meetings and orientation activities will have a new lease of life, but will also retain their traditional appearance and usefulness.
