Pio Monte della Misericordia
Take a dip in the past to relive the Naples of the seventeenth century: now it is possible thanks to Augmented Reality and AR Glasses. This is how the idea of narrating the Pio Monte Chapel was born through the new project: Caravaggio, a New Light.
The sensory journey makes the visitor make a time jump of over four centuries.
The images and videos shown in the AR Glasses allow you to immerse yourself in the atmosphere of the distant seventeenth century in Naples and tell how the ancient Institution of the Pio Monte della Misericordia was born – located in the heart of the city, in via dei Tribunali – whose foundation it dates back to 1602. To want it, seven Neapolitan nobles driven by a heartfelt vocation of charity and assistance towards others.
The Tour includes the AR Glasses, earphones and the entrance ticket to the Museum.
The meeting point is at the ticket office of the site: Via dei Tribunali, 253. 80139 – Naples
The Tour is available in English and Italian.
