I introduced the use of new technologies to connect Museums & historical sites to a larger and younger audience . 

For the first time in 2005  a large video projection was used on the facade of the Borghese Gallery Museum. The virtual restoration received an enthusiastic national  press coverage and increased the Museum ticket sales of 20% in the first 3 months.
