CIO Insider Team | Wednesday, 30 August, 2023

The G20 Digital Museum, which will include at least one notable artifact or its digital reproduction from each of the member countries and the nine guest countries, is being planned by the G20 Centre in anticipation of the upcoming summit. India, which is currently in the position of holding the G20 chair, has expressed this goal.

According to reports, the project will probably be announced on September 9th or 10th during the Leaders Summit.

Additionally, it is anticipated that the unique physical museum will include digital reproductions of Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa, a masterpiece from the 16th century that is displayed at the Louvre Museum in Paris. Additionally, the well-known oil painting "Girl with a Pearl Earring" by Dutch artist Johannes Vermeer, which is housed in a museum in the Netherlands, is also probably going to be added.

Delegates were mesmerized by the performance of a unique G20 orchestra during the just finished G20 Culture Ministers' Meeting in Varanasi, which featured a performance titled "Sur Vasudha."

The Culture Ministry is also working on a number of other G20 initiatives, including a "G20 Digital Museum - Culture Corridor" and a "G20 Anthology of Poems - Under the Same Sky," while the main Summit event is nearby.

On September 9, the G20 Summit in Delhi is scheduled to get underway. Representatives of both member countries and invited countries will attend the two-day summit. The culmination of all G20 processes and talks among ministers, senior officials, and civil society will take place during the 18th G20 Heads of State and Government Summit in Delhi.

According to reports, the project will probably be announced on September 9th or 10th during the Leaders Summit.

The G20, or Group of 20, is an intergovernmental forum that brings together the largest industrialized and developing economies of the globe. The multinational organization's alternating presidency is presently held by India.

In his video presentation at the G20 Culture Ministers' Meeting, Modi had stated that "heritage is a vital asset for economic growth and diversification" and added that India's motto is "Virasat Bhi, Vikas Bhi."
