This paper presents the interactive system developed for the virtual presentation of the coin collection of the Museum Palazzo Blu. Taking advantage from the integration of multimedia data and Reflectance Transformation Imaging data, and also exploiting the technology for the 3D content publication on the Web, the kiosk allows the user to improve its knowledge about the coins in an interactive and easy way using all the capabilities of RTI image manipulation, such as the interactive change of the light direction on the coin surface.
