Benozzo Gozzoli. The life, works and techniques

In celebration of the opening of the Museo Benozzo Gozzoli in Castelfiorentino, the Institute and Museum of the History of Science produced a multimedia website featuring the fifteenth-century artist. Focusing on the close link between scientific knowledge and cultural development in Tuscany, the website explains, by means of interactive systems, 3D animations and movies, the techniques of production, conservation and restoration of the frescos. Information sheets were produced by experts in their fields (Serena Nocentini for the historical-artistic part and Fabrizio Jacopino for the part on restoration) to create a rich iconographic display as well as a provide a way to geographical reference and identify the individual works of Benozzo complete with an application designed to provide a broad and comprehensive overview about the artist and the painting techniques of the time.
