RELIVE THE ANCIENT SPLENDOURS OF THE CIRCUS MAXIMUS IN THE IMPERIAL PERIOD OF ROME THROUGH AUGMENTED AND VIRTUAL REALITY
A place of entertainment and one of the City?s undisputed landmarks, the Circus Maximus comes back to life thanks to an innovative valorisation project using augmented (AR) and virtual reality (VR). One of the most relevant monuments in Roman history, the Circus Maximus can for the first time be seen through all its historic phases thanks to a ground-breaking project using interactive display technologies that have never before been used in such an extended outdoor area.
The headsets available give a virtual rendering of the Circus Maximus by overlapping images of the past to the present-day reality to reconstruct its initial magnificence: in particular, the Arch of Titus will appear in its original majestic height.
The CIRCO MAXIMO EXPERIENCE, through continuous flashbacks to the past thanks to reconstructions in augmented and virtual reality, will enable you to see the life of the age-old valley unfold before your eyes, stroll through the Roman shops and watch a chariot race among shouts of encouragement and overturned chariots.
The 40-minute walking itinerary is available in eight languages (Italian, English, French, German, Spanish, Russian, Chinese and Japanese).
The eight stops are the following: the valley floor of the Circus in the archaic period, the Circus from the 1st century BC to the 1st century AD, the Circus in the imperial period, the seating tiers (cavea), the Arch of Titus, the shops (tabernae), the Circus in the Middle Ages and in modern times and lastly, ?A Day at the Circus?. The tour is available with immersive glasses (see-through technology) and stereo audio earphones included in the admission ticket to the ?Circo Maximo Experience?.
The visit is also available for deaf people thanks to simplified subtitles in Italian or English.
