Restaurants, QR Codes and Italian Renaissance Art

A group of volunteers who aim to bring entertaining cultural experiences to a wider audience calling themselves Pervasive Bordeaux have placed high quality reproductions of Italian Renaissance art in Italian restaurants in Bordeaux. QR Codes on table cards invite the customers to contemplate the painting and to access a short commentary through their smartphones while enjoying their Italian food. Both sides of the card for Caravaggio’s Les Tricheurs (The Cheaters c1594) is shown below.
