Portrait of Giacomo Alliata

Giacomo Alliata

Laboratory of Experimental Museology Switzerland Academic Research

Giacomo Alliata is a PhD student at the Laboratory of Experimental Museology (EPFL). After a Master degree in Digital Humanities obtained at EPFL, Giacomo has decided to specialize in the field of experimental museology, leveraging the newest technologies to create interactive and innovative ways to approach cultural and heritage collections. He believes this kind of digital installation can offer a more compelling exploration of large archives, turning visitors in cultural exhibitions from mere spectators to true actors of the experience. His research interests include the science of interactions, theories of embodiment and the narrative component of immersive environments for cultural heritage. He leverages state-of-the-art algorithms to develop new modes of access to these large digital collections.
