Franciscans launch permanent film exhibition on Saint Francis of Assisi

Visitors will be able to learn more about the life of the saint and the history of the Franciscan Order. It will feature three large multimedia rooms, five interactive stands, two large screens measuring 32 feet squared each, three touch and one 3-D screen.

Most valuable, however, are the contents. The library has more than 1,000 images, 700 digitized historical records, and digital reproductions of the basilicas' art, such as the Giotto frescoes. In addition, it will also screen documentaries on the life of St. Francis, and the daily lives of his friars.

After an impressive visit through the city, the new media library will allow visitors to take a no less impressive virtual tour of Assisi's history.
