Maker Faire Rome 2023

History Box

History Box is an interactive multimedia project created to enhance and facilitate the usability of archival documents. Inspired by the microfilm reader, the installation brings together some historical materials on the life of Giuseppe Di Vagno, a Socialist Party parliamentarian who was the victim of a fascist assassination attempt in 1921. Through a physical interface consisting of knobs, sliders and a handset, the user can consult the archival materials in an unconventional way. Features such as audio-reading and document enlargement are designed to ensure greater accessibility.
