Vatican to launch NFTs and VR for art collections

Sensorium, a leading metaverse developer, has announced a strategic partnership with the Humanity 2.0 Foundation to develop the first-ever Virtual Reality (VR) and Non-Fungible Token (NFT) gallery hosting the Vatican’s art, content, and educational initiatives.

The Humanity 2.0 Foundation is a non-profit organisation which tackles obstacles surrounding humanity’s socio-economic development.

The global project is being chaired by Father Philip Larrey, Dean of Philosophy at the Pope's University (Pontifical Lateran University) in Vatican City.

“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,” Larrey said. “The partnership with Sensorium brings this goal a step further and equips us with the latest tech solutions.”

Featuring masterworks from the Vatican's collection, it is hoped that the public-private partnership will develop the NFT-gallery, making it accessible in VR and desktop to those who otherwise would not be able to.
