Starting from February 4th, 2017 Domus Aurea’s archaeological restoration site will reopen enhanced by a new and innovative multimedia experience aimed to improve the scientific value of the site.

As implementation of the offer usually provided during the previous years, a new specific site project has been realized focusing on new technologies as immersive virtual reality and video narration.

These new elements are aimed to increase the fruition of the visitors through the use of multimedia installations provided with the latest technologies as Video Mapping and Virtual Reality.

These new technologies will be combined with the guided tour of the Domus Aurea’s site  through a 12-steps itinerary, enhanced by:
High definition projections about Domus Aurea’s history will be presented at the beginning of the itinerary, in the main access aisle;
High definition installation in augmented reality in the “Golden Vault Room”.

The final result will be a true time travel, a sort of cognitive and emotional short circuit, something really  innovative  in the new technologies applied to the cultural heritage.
