Treasure City, and VISITO-Tuscany
Visual Treasure Hunt during the Giugno Pisano
Day and Month: From 1 June 2011 until September 2011; Location: Pisa; Time: day time; Type of event: Entertainment recreational-cultural; Device: use of personal smart-phone (Android and iPhone)
How it works, Playing field: The game will take place in the historical quarters of Pisa with walking itineraries (the maximum walk distance is 2 km). Goal of the game is to follow an itinerary in stages, covering places of historical and artistic relevance, with a mechanism similar to a treasure hunt: clues and riddles to move between stages (in the meantime we will tell you an interesting story). Itineraries and steps: Itineraries lead the visitor-players around the city, to discover the town’s architectural and cultural treasures. You go to the next stage of the itinerary by solving riddles. Solving the riddles: in order to check that you solved a riddle you have to take a picture of the monument, building, or a detail indicated by the riddle. The system will check it and, if correct, it will propose the next riddle. Duration and length of the game: the proposed trails lead visitors around Pisa on journeys that are about 1h-2h, or around 2 km in length.
