VENICE / Venice Project Center

Abstract

The project compiled all previous information collected by the Venice Project Center on the bells and bell towers of Venice, Italy. The project team visited previously inaccessible bell towers and improved video and sound recordings of the bells. The project proposed templates and specific pages linked to the city's bells and bell towers for the online encyclopedia, Venipedia.org. The project contributed information to the UNESCO Venice Public Art mobile application, a demo of which can be found at www.preservenice.org. A website was created to show the ringing times of the bell towers on a Google Maps image, as well as to provide a tool to allow users to play the sounds of the bells. This site is available at bells.veniceprojectcenter.org.
