Starting today, a new way to discover the Duomo is born, enjoying the possibility of an immersive guided tour embellished with an extraordinary immersive experience, through the use of Augmented Reality.
Augmented reality integrates with a virtual image what the visitor sees through the smartglasses, geo-referencing the position and superimposing graphic simulations on the architectural elements and spaces that are observed. The virtual reconstruction thus becomes an aid for the visitor in order to improve understanding of the site in which he finds himself.
It will thus be possible to admire the Archaeological Area of ​​the Cathedral of Milan, with the Baptistery of San Giovanni alle Fonti, through a reconstruction that will take us up to the age of Ambrose, discover the functioning of the Cathedral’s sundial or the ascent of the Nivola up to the Saint Chiodo, exploring the faces and facades of the Monument over the centuries.
The smartglasses used for the project are the Epson Moverio BT-350, ergonomic and resistant, designed to be worn by a large number of visitors, even with prescription glasses, whose 720p HD display and high brightness ensure images sharp and bright colors.
The experience, available immediately also in English and, from next 28 July, also in German and Spanish, can be booked on the official website duomomilano.it
«Duomo Time Walk represents a unique and, without a doubt, one of the most advanced Augmented Reality experiences ever developed in the Cultural Heritage sector – explains Antonio Scuderi, CEO of Artglass and Capitale Cultura Group – because it combines multiple dimensions and challenges: the story of a sacred place and the need to communicate its unique values ​​to everyone, in the most inclusive and direct way. And again, the experimentation of the most advanced forms of Extended Reality and digital edutainment and the scientific and historical rigor that is due to a monument that tells our story to the whole world. The synergy with the entire team of the Veneranda Fabbrica del Duomo was decisive in facing and overcoming these challenges.”
