Reggio Calabria, museum of itself. Project for an interactive musem of the City

Francesca Fatta, Manuela Bassetta, Andrea Manti


The city of Reggio Calabria, its local context and the history that, in this last century, distinguished it, assumed an important role in the determination of the proposal for the project of a virtual museum of the city, which remembers its configuration before the earthquake.

It’s an experience started in the 2014, about the reconstruction of a city that has been deleted by the earthquake of the 1908 and about its new settlement of the historical memory and of the place’s identities.

The project deals with the creation of urban paths with an high multimedia effect and for this reason we asked to Franz Fischnaller in a brief interview to describe some of his more important experiences of virtual museum realized through new generation systems, able to link the digital entertainments to the urban sites, adapted to recreate historical lost paths.
