The Mona Lisa in Massiac. The raft of the jellyfish in Allanche. Freedom leading the people in Murat. Chambord Castle in Neussargues. It seems crazy, impossible. However, from the end of January, it will become a reality… virtual.
Because the Hautes Terres community becomes, after Cère-et-Goul in Carladès and before others like Sumène-Artense, the second intermunicipal community in Cantal to host the “Micro-folie” system. Behind this astonishing name, there is an initiative of the Ministry of Culture and twelve national cultural establishments, coordinated by La Villette, to open the doors of major museums to the entire French territory, thanks to digital technology. In this case, a screen to project slideshows of works that serves as a digital museum, fifteen tablets to go further, even closer in autonomy, and a virtual reality headset to immerse yourself in these museums.
Helmets to immerse yourself in a museum.
Thousands of masterpieces
After a long preparation work, but also training of its agents to make the best use of this device, Hautes Terres received its Micro-madness last Friday. It was inaugurated by two days of festival in Massiac, before it is actually offered to the public from January 20.

And Didier Achalme, president of the interco, to add that
all our inhabitants do not have the means, nor the possibility, to go to the great national museums, often in Paris. Even less with the current inflation. So of course, “Micro-madness” does not replace a museum, direct contact with culture. There is not this atmosphere, often as impressive as the works.
