Multimedia Box: The Louvre

May 28, 2009 by · No comments

The Louvre is one of the most popular world museums and is actually the one attracting the most visitors. Its building was originally erectd in the XII centiury as a fortress, transformed into a museum at the end of the XVII cetury, during the French Revolution. The Louvre holds over 35 000 artifacts, some dating since the V-VI c. BCE. French history is represented through artifacts since the times of the Capetingian dinasty (X-XI c) to the XIX c.

Starting in April, Public Republic will publish video clips in our new Multimedia Box category. The idea behind this new multimedia space is introducing visual information among the impacting texts. Some of the areas of visual coverage will be history, architecture, science, music, visual arts and cinema.
