PIUCULTURA aims at the development of an innovative software system to define and promote a new paradigm of the fruition of cultural heritage through a mix of advanced devices and technologies typical of the information society (smartphone, tablet, augmented reality).
One of the most interesting challenges, in this regard, is precisely the exploitation of cultural heritage as an identifying and bonding element of the European culture. A useful feature, if not indispensable, for overcoming differences in interpretations of the past and for the precise identification of shared and fundamental values. The biggest challenge to be faced is the construction of a real new paradigm of access to resources which by their nature are geographically distributed and heterogeneous. Thus, the necessity of a complete, logic, and interconnection of information of different nature concerning the same theme, an artifact, a work of art, a site of cultural interest. In this sense, we can speak of a real revolution that allows us to build and rework knowledge, as well as the traditional paradigms of fruition and learning.
