The Vatican-related non-profit Humanity 2.0 has just announced a strategic partnership with Sensorium, a company developing its own metaverse.

The goal of this partnership is to bring the Vatican’s vast cultural heritage to the digital world through technologies such as Virtual Reality and NFTs.

Going into details, a Sensorium representative speaking to VICE’s Motherboard said that it would be “fair to say that the Vatican is taking its first steps into the metaverse and the world of NFTs.”

On this, he added:

To give you more information, the Vatican plans to bring its heritage, such as manuscripts, masterpieces and academic initiatives, to the metaverse, with the aim of making them more accessible to people around the world, since some may never be able to visit the Vatican in person.

The Vatican therefore aspires to create an NFT exhibition space, which will be accessible by wearing a VR headset or through a desktop environment. Indeed, Catholic priest Father Philip Larrey and head of Humanity 2.0, added:

We look forward to working with Sensorium to explore ways to democratise art, making it more widely available to people around the world, regardless of their socio-economic and geographical limitations. Working with Sensorium brings this goal closer and equips us with the latest technological solutions.

For the record, the Vatican Museums contain nearly 800 works of art by 250 international artists, including Vincent van Gogh, Michelangelo, Pablo Picasso and others. More than 6 million people visit them every year and soon you too will be able to take a tour of the digital Vatican through Sensorium’s Galaxy metaverse, which is expected to open its doors later this year.
