LÂ´Ara comÂ´era: un racconto in realtÃ aumentata del Museo dell'Ara Pacis
The Ara as it was: the redevelopment project in augmented reality of the Ara Pacis.
Few monuments have managed to transmit, as the Ara Pacis does, the beliefs, ideals and ambitions of a ruling class at the height of its power. Over the centuries the monumental altar has experienced stories and events that you can now relive thanks to the multimedia project THE ARA AS IT WAS, the first systematic redevelopment project in augmented reality of the cultural heritage of Rome.
Using special AR visors (Samsung GearVR) and the devices' camera inserted in them, virtual elements and real elements mix together into the visitors' field of vision leading them on a multisensory and immersive visit of the altar built by Augustus to celebrate the peace he imposed on one of the largest Empires that ever existed.
The route, divided into 9 points of interest (POI),
Lungotevere in Augusta (angolo via Tomacelli) Roma (Museo dellÂ´Ara Pacis)
begins with the models of the Northern Campus Martius, and the Ara Pacis which are populated by small characters intent on celebrating a sacrifice. By looking at the models, the peculiarities of the Campus Martius in Roman times can also be discovered and the history of the altar can be relived, while the casts of the imperial family come to life to tell you their stories first-hand. Its marble characters, deities, plants and animals come to life in 3D and find the colour that enriched the reliefs, according to a restitution hypothesis elaborated in specialised studies.
On the Ara Pacis, as an extraordinary message to posterity, the origins of Rome merge with that of the Augustus family, to represent the fate of a city that becomes an empire and those of a dynasty that dominates it.
