By SIGNIS
Mumbai, Jan. 31. Rome, January, 24th, 2017. The new director of the Vatican museums, Barbara Jatta, presented a new multimedia web site. The user-friendly site, available in Italian, English, French, Spanish and German, contains thousands of images and over fifty videos and virtual tours.

Jatta explained that the new site is a ``work in progress`` with some four thousand of the Vatican`s treasures available to discover and explore online. Over the course of the coming year, she said, she hoped all 20.000 works which are on display in the museums will also be available for consultation online. She said that is only a fraction of the 200.000 works of art belonging to the museums, many of which are kept in in store rooms or other locations unavailable for public viewing.

Mgr Dario Vigano, head of the Vatican`s Secretariat for Communications, has been working together with the museums to produce the new multimedia website. He explained the significance of the museums as part of the Holy See`s cultural diplomacy, underlining the role of ``art as a place of dialogue and encounter``
