Cultural heritage enhancement and technology
The concept of technology applied to cultural heritage enhancement, which is clarified in the final scene of the video mapping, is a true hymn to the synergy between stones and pixels, baroque erudition and digital creativity, searching for a possible and beneficial future for our community.

A journey in time in search of the origin of Marsala
From the destruction of ancient Motya to the foundation of Lilibeum, from the possible reconstruction of an irreparably lost Norman-Arab past to the birth of the Italian dream with the landing of the “Mille”, an event linked with a double thread, both ideal and temporal in its recurrence, to the terrible Allied bombing of 11 May 1943.
The local historical and architectural heritage put to the test by technology, from the catapults used for the first time to break down Moty’s resistance to the rain of fire unleashed by the B-26s in the Second World War, also relived through it, in a three-dimensional story full of pathos.
