On the occasion of the restoration of “Sala delle Asse” (literally, “the hall of planks”) by Leonardo da Vinci at the Sforza Castle in Milan, a multi-faceted communication project by HOC-LAB at Politecnico di Milano (Italy) was devised and is currently being implemented. The ultimate goal is quite new: to allow people to follow the restoration day by day, sharing hypothesis, discoveries, successes as well as discomfitures, fostering a sense of belonging and care for this long-forgotten work of art. A number of other communication goals must be fulfilled in order to make the visitors’ experience complete and satisfactory: to provide background information from a cultural, historical and artistic point of view; to illustrate the restoration’s issues (like what kind of analysis are to be performed and what kind of choices are made); to “tell stories”, long or short, about what goes on, etc.
