These months have undoubtedly been difficult for all sectors and for many companies but, as Capitale Cultura, in addition to supporting our customers in their usual activities, we have thought a lot about the possible prospects for the world of Culture which, necessarily, will have to change (or expand) its habits following this situation.
For this reason, we have used this period of time to analyze the habits of the cultural world in Italy and abroad and to better study the market; these researches have led us to establish a new collaboration with Wikipoint allowing us to evaluate new possibilities and to select and improve the product for the world of culture. Wikipoint is a simple, easy and immediate platform to open museums to the public and to allow a new way to visit online through the creation of Virtual Tour.
From this period of standstill, therefore, Wikipoint was born, an aggregator of digital content, designed around the concept of simplicity, ease of use and immediacy precisely to allow anyone to create and enjoy a narration based on storytelling.
Wikipoint is configured as the most suitable tool to allow museums, institutions, foundations, archives, gardens, museum houses and many other realities to bring their heritage online quickly and easily through the creation of cultural schedules, created through the aggregation of different types of digital content, which can be declined in digital exhibitions, virtual tours and educational experiences.
Thanks to the methods chosen for the narration, it will be possible for the Museum to create different narrative strands, within which to digitally convert the exhibition and thematic paths that can be exhibited with the curators’ voice to the digital audience.
This reality guarantees a new type of experience for the user, characterized by interactivity and immediacy of use: with this digital platform, in fact, the user is encouraged to maintain the connection with the institution thanks to the perfect integration that the platform allows and thanks to the possibility of using it also as a real communication channel that can be perfectly integrated within the website.
The platform is also characterized by its accessibility from any device, for the support of audio files, text to speech (speech synthesis that converts text into spoken voice), automatic translation in 103 languages, for the possibility of implementing various functions of edutainment and digital educational laboratory, thus becoming a useful tool not only for schools but also for groups and for younger and curious visitors.
Because of its structure, therefore, Wikipoint presents itself as a storytelling that is simple to construct and modify based on the succession of the needs of the institutions. This solution, designed for all companies committed to enhancing the rich cultural heritage of the area, evolves every day and aims to develop new flexible experiences for the different needs that the daily newspaper requires us to face, presenting itself, in fact, as a new possibility of make use of places and elements that, even under normal conditions, would not be open to visitors or fully appreciated.
