Monday, October 18th a brand new sim has been inaugurated: "MiC - Museums in Comune Roma Capitale ( )

This sim has been bought by The City of Roma Capitale through “Zetema”, the company that manages all the museums of the civic circuit.
Marina Bellini (Mexi Lane in SL) who is in charge for the Communication 2.0 of the city of Roma is the general manager of this sim that is supposed to become an important cultural centre where virtual exhibits will replicate l the same exhibits currently displayed in the museums in real life.

A great room will be given to avant-garde metaverse artists, who in turn, will present their own personal immersive exhibits.

Every exhibit will be video recorded and distributed through the Museums' channels and also throughout the Metro and Bus transport systems of Rome :this will be a way to merge together virtual creativity and real life artworks.Furthermore at the Macro of Rome ( ), a dedicated space will be set aside for the Virtual Expo currently exhibited at MiC in Second Life.

Lectures, meetings and events will be soon proposed on this sim that is open to all kind of original proposals:everyone is so invited to submit his projects to the Art Director Mexi Lane, either via notecards (within SL) or e-mail: .

An important local agency of Roma Capitale will start in January 2011 to work in the field of education and training using this sim as social platform.

This sim ,a sort of a look to the Past that allows to Live for the Future ,is worth of a visit also for its amazing building who has been set up under Mexiâs supervision:the evocative design of the meeting place has been staged by Rumegash Altamura and Patrizia Blessed, using references from Ancient Rome and of its capital wonders, which have provided in its absolute exclusivity, the major part of the textures for the construction; from the wall of the "Tempio di Giove" under the room of "Marco Aurelio" at the "Musei Capitolini", to the friezes of the "Tabularium", even to the Roman walls of the "Galleria Lapidaria", and to finish with the precious objects of the "Palazzo Nuovo".

The textures and objects have been crafted by skilfull builders and designers utilizing such progams as Blender, Photoshop and Gimp,in order to achieve the most realistic effects possible in the Metaverse. Some details have been by Antosperandeo Allen, Solkide Auer, Maryva Mayo and Flavio Dayafter.

A small part of the island has become the home of the Vestals,the Cave an evocative and fascinating place, where will take place those cultural meetings and events which require a particular emotional attention.
