Beatrice Valeri Fabio Casati Marcos Baez Robin Boast

In the past museums have been slow in fully utilising new technologies, but in the last decade this situation has changed dramatically.

In this paper a new concept of such an extended museum is presented, with particular attention to gathering, organization and consumption of knowledge.
