On August 2nd, Kevin Spacey performed “The Boxer“, a poem by Gabriele Tinti, at Palazzo Massimo alle Terme in Rome. We have good news for all those who were not present: they will be able to relive the wonderful Kevin’s performance through technology.
On 21 March, on World Poetry Day, the Museo Nazionale Romano will present, live on Facebook, the multimedia project “Ruins“, created by the writer and poet Gabriele Tinti, which will be available for a month from the reopening of the Museum. This technology represents a synthesis of the best compositions of Gabriel Tinti and will be available to visitors of the Museum, who will access the content on a web platform through the QR codes present in correspondence of the works of art.
The mobile format will offer visitors audio-visual-textual poetic contributions in English and Italian on the masterpieces in question. The project is the first experimentation in the world in this regard. It will be possible to relive Kevin Spacey’s interpretation of The Boxer thanks to the audio guide “Boxer At Rest” who will be on display at Museo Nazionale Romano of Palazzo Massimo alle Terme. The audio guide will therefore be available to all who will the museum of Palazzo Massimo for a month after its reopening (which is currently indicated as April 3, but it will probably postponed until a later date due to the lockdown caused by the Coronavirus).

Once our lives are back to normal, do not miss the opportunity to visit the Museum of Palazzo Massimo to live an extraordinary experience, between the works of art of antiquity and the voice of Kevin Spacey (and It is also a good way to help Italian tourism, hard hit by the Coronavirus epidemic).
