A multisensory journey featuring interactive content, works to listen to and touch, guides in LIS (Italian Sign Language), new multimedia tools, and contemporary languages.

In anticipation of the tenth anniversary of Palazzo Pretorio’s inauguration in Prato on April 10th, the new project was launched and a multimedia and inclusive path was presented at the palace during the press conference on March 14th.

ETT handled the design, development, supply, and installation of the interactive multimedia model of Palazzo Pretorio, including all production of audiovisual content and its support structure.

The multimedia technological station consists of a scale model of Palazzo Pretorio, created through 3D modeling and printing, and subsequently sensorized to make it interactive and accessible to all.

The aim of the station is, in fact, to reduce the perceptual diaphragm associated with the exclusive use of sight, stimulating other sensory dimensions such as touch and sound.

The entire station was created following the principles of Design for All.

The creation of the 3D model of the scale model is the result of meticulous 3D modeling work starting from CAD surveys and photographic references, taking into account the rendering of architectural details in relation to tactile sensitivity.

Special sensors located inside the scale model allow users to activate the content with a simple touch, thus significantly breaking down barriers between the user and the object to be explored. This immediate approach is particularly important for a non-sighted and visually impaired audience, but also brings closer a young audience or those with specific cognitive disabilities.

Space Spa, a company within the ETT group, handled the development of the Palazzo Pretorio Museum APP and the website, revamped with a design that best expresses the Museum’s visual identity ten years after its reopening.
