LEARNING THROUGH PLAY SICILY HISTORIES

The Sicily Histories project was created in March 2016, with the establishment of the homonymous social promotion association, specialising in organising historical excursions characterised by the development of a light role-playing games during guided tours.

The idea was transferred to a technological and business thanks to the co-financing by NOP Culture and Development ERDF 2014/2020 (Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Tourism – MIBACT). Thanks to the co-financing the technology was bought to create the application. The goal of the project is to promote the Sicilian territory thanks to the implementation of the digitalization of the cultural use of the Sicilian heritage.


Sicily Histories is now, therefore, a geolocation app that aims to link Sicilian historical and artistic heritage through the creation of stories and thematic modules.

TOURIST GUIDE

Users can read Sicily Histories in two different ways: firstly there is the highly professional, full tourist guide made by the sector's tourism operators, and secondly there is the exploration of Sicily's artistic and historical sites with the support of augmented reality and 3D reconstructions.

STORYTELLING NARRATIVE

But the heart of Sicily Histories is the storytelling narrative, able to bring out the emotions of ancient and contemporary history, with storylines that are introduced amidst temples and archaeological parks, mosaics to rebuild, and places and characters which the users can make progress.

100% GAMIFICATION

Following the development of the storylines that flow from one location to another and performing the actions provided at each cultural site in the tourism experience, the user will unlock the storylines of the main characters and may also win prizes that can be redeemed on the local market.
