Through the technological “machine” of augmented reality it will be possible to discover a second “machine”: the gigantic equestrian monument (over seven meters high) of Duke Francesco III, built in 1774 for the square of Sant’Agostino and destroyed just over twenty ‘years later, with the revolutionary movements.

The exact location of this colossus in white Carrara marble in the current space of the square, supported by sources of the time, will allow the visitor, once installed the special “DigiMO” app (to download it click here) on your smartphone or tablet , to visualize “virtually” its size and to get closer to appreciate its decoration even up close.

The experience, accompanied by a short audio guide, will thus allow you to retrace the events of this monument and dive back in time, to also appreciate the eighteenth-century configuration of the square, when it was closed by the door of Sant’Agostino, demolished in the early twentieth century and of which a similar reconstruction will be presented.
