The Venice Time Machine Project is a pioneer international Digital Humanities scientific program which includes two phases to build a digital library and 4D model of Venice Mirror world.
According to the project website, "The Venice Time Machine is part of the Time Machine Europe project. Its bootstrapping phase was developed between 2012 and 2019. The project is now starting its second phase of development, planning activities from 2020 to 2028."" The first phase “included major Venetian patrimonial institutions: the State Archive in Venice, The Marciana Library, The Instituto Veneto and the Giorgio Cini Foundation.” "The Phase II of the project (2020-2028) will focus on developing the Venice Mirror World, a 4D model of the Venice overlapping the city itself directly connecting the information of its past for those who have to decide its future. "
The project is meaningful for Venice's cultural heritage and the study of humanities.
