Google Arts & Culture is launching today, Wednesday, March 6, 2019, "Once Upon a Try", the largest online exhibition on inventions and discoveries ever. The collections, stories and wealh of knowledge of over 110 institutions in 23 countries, including Museo Galileo, have been brought together to reveal millennia of discoveries and the great minds behind them.
Museo Galileo is pleased to participate in the Google initiative "Once Upon a Try" with two stories about the invention of the telescope, "A mass of innumerable stars", and the microscope, "Zoom in the invisible world". The online exhibition will show both the images of the first telescopes and lenses and the documentation associated with them that illustrates the context in which they were conceived.
The cooperation with Google Arts & Culture, that has been brought about for several years now, has allowed Museo Galileo to expand the visibility of its collections, reaching a wider audience with a multimedia impact communication that retains the scientific value of the contents and has at the same time an appealing layout.
