The path of the Stanze dell’Ariosto begins with “The Arioscope” a kind of palm reading in which the fates of Love, Fortune, and Future are declared by a technological system activated through vocal, tactile, and visual interaction. Special phrases from the poem have been selected, recalling the play of human destiny. It continues with the virtual reality storytelling experience of the newly restored rooms, separated from the rest of the building by a narrow staircase: a combination of cinematic VR storytelling and three-dimensional exploratory space. In this guided tour, the user is immersed in the spaces, free to move around, while being guided by a narrative voice. The last station features a large multitouch screen, a ‘video wall’, designed for easy, immediate, and inclusive access. It serves as a platform for gathering video content related to studies, conferences, and projects about Ariosto. Currently, there are five thematic areas with around twenty short video clips, accessible through a user-friendly carousel interface suitable for both individual and group experiences.
During their journey and taking the metaphor dear to Ludovico Ariosto’s heart of a story as a “great canvas” that weaves together characters and events, children and adults encounter the places, protagonists, and adventures of the poem in constantly changing ways, moving between different content, and accompanied by Ariosto’s narrative voice.
