INSIDE THE VATICAN WITH MINA: GREGORIAN CHANTS AND FULLSCREEN VIRTUAL
REALITY PANORAMAS

LUGANO, Switzerland - December 21, 2003 - VRWAY Communication has just
launched a special website with sixteen fullscreen panoramas of the
Vatican and its historical basilicas, accompanied by Gregorian chants
performed by Mina Mazzini, Italy’s legendary diva.

The Vatican granted VRWAY special access that allowed an international
team of photographers to capture the beauty of the Vatican’s basilicas
and surroundings - including St. Peter’s, Santa Maria Maggiore, San
Paolo Fuori le Mura and San Giovanni di Laterano.  These photographs
have been converted into fullscreen 360-degree virtual reality
panoramas, and are also available on VRWAY’s online magazine, VRMAG.

Mina was immediately enthusiastic when approached with the project and
kindly agreed to lend her haunting Gregorian chants, from her Dalla
Terra CD, as musical accompaniment.

The Vatican project, entitled ‘The Beauty of the Vatican, in Virtual
Reality, with Italian Diva Mina’, is available in a range of technology
that render it easily accessible to those with high-speed Internet
connections as well as those using dial-up.  No software downloads are
needed to view the panoramas, although users with the QuickTime plug in
and Zoomify components will be able to access the full range of
technical features.

VRMAG® is the premier online magazine dedicated to exploring the
people, places and events of the world with virtual reality (VR).  It
also addresses more technical issues of interest to the VR professional
community with a subsection, entitled VARTIST, with articles on
well-known VR professionals. VRMAG® is published by VRWAY®.
