Newsroom 16/08/2018 | 16:04

Through the launch of the project “Acum 100 ani”, Historia Rediviva marks the start of the concept Visual History, an immersive, gamefied approach, a dramatized manner of presenting the historical information, brought in present through visual means, using 3D technology and virtual reality. Therefore, history becomes entertainment.

“It would be dishonorable for us to forget that the Big Union wouldn’t have been possible without the 960 days in which the country was engaged in battles that ended with almost 1 million victims (dead, wounded and MIAs), a number that relative to the population of almost 8 million inhabitants of the Old Kingdom of 1916 represents a terrible price paid,” pointed out Adrian Pandea, director, Editura Militara.

The project targets mainly the young generation, using technology as an authentic interaction tool, based on empathy.

“What attracted us the most at this project was that it shows history in a cinematographic manner. Visual History is not about the told or mechanically recited history, but about the history in which you become an indirect witness because you can see it in simulations, journal fragments and documents,” said Anda Visan (PR & Marketing Coordinator, Humanitas). 

On the education platform, the pieces of information are divided into intuitive sections: Armies, Battles, Personalities, Autobiographies, Decorations.

“Each medal on the site can be seen 3D, therefore transforming the documentation experience into an almost sensory one. It’s our way of putting an accent on the fact that we are proposing ourselves to paint the picture of the history in authentic shades. Sometimes, history unfairly glorifies pseudo-heroes. Sometimes, history shuts up when it shouldn’t. Sometimes, the past is re-written, either by omission, either by wrong re-interpretations. Our project proposes itself to re-bring in public’s attention the year of the Big War in a light that represents the historic truth, without falling to the mystification. The Romanian army wasn’t spared during the War for the Country’s Reunion by lost battles, commanders that committed big errors in leading or running the battles, not by desperate moments. And our project proposes itself to document this road in the foxholes both in reality and figuratively, with good and bad,” said Radu Olteanu, the project’s initiator
