Why can’t Penguins enter Federica square?

Web

In november 2010 I discovered the existence of Federica, the tridimensional virtual square” that should be the innovative web-learning system of the Federico II University in Naples. Out of curiosity, I decided to visit it and all I got was a black screen and some perplexities. Some of them, which I described in another page are on the very sense of a website like that, others are more specific. I got a black screen because I use Linux, while (quoting from the University website):

the 3D campus of Federica was implemented with Immersion, the real-time software for 3D visualization and interactive simulation for Windows and Mac OS X platforms entirely developed in Italy by Immaginaria snc.

In 2010, according to a press release issued on March 13th, 2009 “inside the Federica Campus visitors are free to stroll around the tridimensional spaces of the virtual University”. Er, no, sorry.
