Followed by other sites, which will be told with new and surprising solutions. “This show – says Antonio Scuderi, CEO of Capitale Cultura Group and ARTGLASS to – is important for two reasons: the innovation due to the fact that the Augmented Reality is applied for the first time ever out of a cultural site, in a formula in which the wearable fruition is the core of the experience. And the fact that we are demonstrating that this instrument is worth to exploit promotion and territorial marketing. We are also convinced that we will stimulate many children and young people to get closer to our cultural heritage”.
