Pop-up City. Percorsi reali e virtuali di racconto del territorio

Pop Up City is a territory exploration project that through the use of personal devices adds, overlays, writes and reads virtual information to the physical context. The idea behind the pop-up, in book technology as in computer technology, is that of three-dimensional development, the opening of temporary windows that have the function of warning, help or advice for navigation. Augmented reality applied to cultural heritage and the cityscape offers a new way of telling stories rooted in local culture, creating an intergenerational collective imagination.
