Categories: Culture and creativity -Literature and Publishing
An innovative exhibition project that uses augmented reality to narrate the episode of Paolo and Francesca from Canto V of Hell, to commemorate the 700th anniversary of Dante Alighieri's death.
Inferno 5

New languages allow the public to immerse themselves in the atmosphere of the Canto dedicated to Paolo and Francesca thanks to an augmented reality multimedia experience, which can be visited at foreign venues via an app and on a special website.

Visitors to ‘Inferno 5‘ are taken on a guided discovery of Dante’s work, spoken in Italian and English, French, Spanish or Portuguese, while 3D models, animations and maps provide more insight to the major themes of the Canto, from mythological references to the historical and social context.  The contents include artworks, literary texts and videos of musical, opera and choral performances, to demonstrate the extent of the influence exerted by the story of Paolo and Francesca on creators from different eras and disciplines.

The multimedia experience includes the unpublished texts by the writer Bianca Garavelli and is developed thanks to MTM Project.
