Digital Lighthouse partner of the project "BARI MATERA 5G"

25 May 2018


Today, in Matera and Bari, the experimentation about Digital Tourism & Virtual Reality has started , set up for the Bari Matera 5G Project, where Digital Lighthouse and Geocart companies took part as partners.
Bari Matera 5G is the project with which TIM, Fastweb and Huawei won the tender of the MISE for testing the new 5G technology in two cities with the collaboration of partners of excellence, including, precisely, the two companies from Basilicata.
The application of Turismo Digitale & Virtual Reality realized involves the virtual visit of some cave churches of Matera in a multiplayer context that, thanks to 5G network, allows you to "live" some of the main tourist attractions of the city through an immersive solution where participants of the two cities are united in a single virtual visit.
The solution offers the possibility to move freely in the foreseen areas, get close to the walls or objects available and manipulate them, thanks to the use of Virtual Reality viewers. The experience has been activated simultaneously in the two cities of Matera and Bari, through interactive ways that allow the visitor to meet and interact with other visitors physically located in places physically distant from the one in which it is located, as well as listen and follow the directions given by a real tour guide of the city.
With this experimentation, In which the two companies of Geocart Group participated, providing technologies and know-how in the sectors of remote sensing, computer graphics and augmented virtual reality, a further step is taken in the context of activities aimed at enhancement of cultural heritage and experimentation with an innovative tourism concept.
Specifically, It's possible to take a digital tour of some cave churches in Matera, in particular the Church of S. Nicola dei Greci, the site "Cripta del Peccato Originale", the Church of "S. Maria degli Angeli" and the Church of "Madonna delle Virtù".

Saint Lawrence night on the “bridge to the moon”: extraordinary tibetan bridges night opening

03 August 2017


On August 10 from 9 p.m. at Sasso di Castaldain the province of Potenza, Digital Lighthouse with the support of Red Bull Energy Drink will transform the dream of getting the most impressive experience on St. Lawrence night into reality: dangling in the air, being immersed in the pristine nature and among falling stars, on the most spectacular Tibetan bridge in Italy. That night will become a thrilling adventure along the sky path of the record bay of the Bridge to the Moon, which is 300 meters long, 120 meters from the ground. The walk on the Bridge to the Moon, on St. Lawrence night, will lead to an astronomical observatory set up for the occasion on the fascinating glass skywalk anchored to the rocks of the village of Sasso di Castalda. The Bridge to the Moon, named so as a tribute to NASA engineer Rocco Petrone, whose origins are precisely from Sasso di Castalda, who led the first man on the Moon with Apollo 11 mission and served as director of launch operations at Kennedy Space Center and of the entire Apollo Program, will host the music of the exclusive Volvo Sugga, the Red Bull mobile vehicle that will transform the terraces of the village into an ethereal lounge bar under a starry sky. The event, made possible by the far-sightedness of the municipal administration of Sasso di Castalda, who believed in the realization of the new macro-attraction of the Basilicata region, will be filmed entirely by a television crew.
