Italian museums go live on Net

Some of the world's richest collections of art and sculpture have been opened up to Internet surfers with the help of Microsoft.

Information on Italy's 3000 museums has become available on the Internet through an agreement between Microsoft Italia, the Italian subsidiary of Microsoft, and the Italian publishing company ADN-Kronos Libri.

Information in English and Italian on the works of art on display, opening hours and admission prices can be found at http://www.museionline.com/. The initiative, which opens a "virtual" shop window for some of the world's richest collections of art and sculpture, was presented during the weekend in Rome's Capitoline Museum in the presence of city mayor Francesco Rutelli.
