The Google Art Project offers the possibility to access from home to the permanent collections of cultural institutions worldwide. The platform offers the user to virtually walk in the two oval rooms of Water Lilies by Claude Monet designed between 1915 and 1926 in Giverny, and also, thanks to the zoom function, to immerse in the whole of the eight monumental compositions of the impressionist Master.
This virtual immersion allows to understand, prepare but also deepen and enrich his visit to the Orangerie
