Devotion in Virtual Reality: Rome’s Grottapinta – a Demonstration

Louis I. Hamilton,  Margarita Vinnikov, Burcak Ozludil

This demonstration presents an ongoing research project on the perception of a virtual replica of the Grottapinta, in the increasingly touristic zone of the Campo de’ Fiori that was recently “restored” by the Capella Orsini Lab (in an adjoining deconsecrated church). The virtual Grottapinta allows us to assess user interactions with an informal, vernacular “sacred space,” testing fundamental questions concerning learned versus anthropological responses to such spaces, and how restoration shapes viewers’ responses.
