Abstract

This paper presents the interactive installation “Come un’Onda premuta da un’Onda” (“As Wave impels a Wave”, a citation from Ovidio’s “Metamorphoses” as a metaphor of time). The installation, presented in its early version at the Festival della Scienza 2009, introduces visitors to the rich history and artistic content of a monumental building: a virtual walk through the time. The core idea is to support an active experience based on novel paradigms of interaction and narration. The active experience is grounded on an informational environment characterized by an invisible “sound scent” map. The research is partially supported by the EU FP7 ICT I-SEARCH project.
