Artebinaria Open-Air Museum in Florence, London, and Paris
The first three imaginary museums are already open at Piazzale Michelangelo in Florence, at Primrose Hill (The Regent’s Park) in London, and at Place-Vendôme in Paris, and offer a selection of 100 masterpieces of painting from the 13th to the 20th century.

How to Visit Artebinaria Open-Air Museum
A visit to one of Artebinaria’s Open-Air Museums takes place via the app Open-Air Museum by Artebinaria, which allows visitors who are in one of the geo-located museum locations to explore the artworks in augmented reality.
Visits to the Artebinaria Open-Air Museums are free of charge and are offered by selected sponsors, whose logos are visible in 3D directly within the augmented reality scenes.
Each of Artebinaria’s Open-Air Museums is arranged in a series of ‘Pavilions’ and ‘Exhibition Rooms,’ which over time will house new thematic exhibitions.
Inside the virtual rooms, visitors can admire the artworks, displayed in life-size, as if they were hanging on invisible walls which do not conceal their surroundings.
Moving within each imaginary room, visitors can admire the artworks from any perspective. In particular, it is possible to get close to an artwork to discover all its details or touch an artwork in space to view its information sheet.
100 Masterpieces in Augmented Reality
In this first edition, located in London, Paris, and Florence, the Pavilions of Artebinaria Open-Air Museum are dedicated to the themes of everyday life, portraits, mythology, and sacred art. Inside the exhibition rooms are shown 100 paintings of more than 60 great masters such as Giotto, Vermeer, Rubens, Van Gogh, Leonardo da Vinci, Rembrandt, Gauguin, Renoir, Degas, Monet, etc.
