In this odd situation, the increment of Online activities rose up in a significant way, proposing a new digital environment to keep “open” the (at least virtual) access to these important places. From the virtual tour reinterpretation to new options for presenting and accessing, the world started to have an extremely enriched offer of digital twins of the world heritage with a significant increase of the digital heritage “treasure”. At the end of 2021 it will be useful and pleasant, to sum up, experiences and check results and the lesson learned from this horrible, but formative, period.
