Vatican Museums releases new online content to display Christian Art


The Vatican Museums have launched a new YouTube channel and updated their website to offer high-resolution images of their masterpieces along with mobile-friendly information to the public. The Musei Vaticani YouTube channel shows a number of short visual tours of some of its collections and a range of promotional videos highlighting tours and services offered on-site, including signing guides for deaf people. Meanwhile, its website has been overhauled to be compatible with all electronic platforms and devices. Barbara Jatta, the museums' new director, said at a Vatican news conference yesterday that this was so it could reach into all the "remote corners of the earth". [link]
