The idea for the Biblio PT app came to VAST-LAB in collaboration with the Biblioteca San Giorgio and YouLab – An American Corner in Pistoia, through the announcement of a contest aimed at school-age children that would enable them to narrate an historical-critical and geographical itinerary through their eyes. The route that was developed winds its way through the town of Pistoia, connecting the older libraries and archives to one another and finally ending at the Biblioteca San Giorgio, a latest-generation library.

Through the creation of three-dimensional replicas of objects that were collected during the guided walk through town and are “living” in the historical buildings of great merit of Pistoia, Biblio PT reconstructs the history of writing supports, from antiphonal scrolls and illuminated manuscripts to modern-day e-book readers.

Gonfienti tb was developed by VAST-LAB, a laboratory within PIN Polo – Universitario Città di Prato devoted to researching digital technologies applied to Cultural Heritage, in collaboration with the Archaeological Superintendence of Tuscany.

The application is a complete, simple and intuitive guide, rich in multimedia contents, developed to enable the comprehension of the archaeological site of Gonfienti, located in the Province of Prato. The area is difficult to read, because only the dry stonewall foundations of the structures remain, while the elevations built of perishable materials (clay and wood) have gone lost.

Gonfienti tb therefore allows the visitor to discover the richness of the archaeological site, in particular of the great residential building, the only construction thoroughly investigated by the archaeologists, through the use of an audio guide, videos, images and 3D reconstructions.

This app is currently only in Italian.

An immediate and intuitive interface enables the user to select the most appropriate itineraries according to the user’s specific needs and preferences, allowing him/her to make choices based on the information collected in specific dedicated sections: attractions along the way, length, duration. A detailed interactive map, also available offline, will guide the hiker step by step, detecting his/her position along the chosen itinerary and indicating the points of interest in the vicinity (for example springs and sources, panoramic viewpoints, waterfalls).

Each path is provided with an elevation profile, which shows at a glance the development of the terrain.

In case of emergencies, in the presence of sufficient telephone coverage, it is possible to activate the function that will put the hiker in direct contact with the local chapter of the “Soccorso Alpino CAI” (Alpine Rescue Service, operated by the Italian Alpine Club), allowing him/her to communicate their position.

This application is the result of a collaboration between VAST-LAB of PIN – Polo Universitario di Prato, which can boast a well-established experience in the IT development of similar products, the Club Alpino Italiano – Sezione “Emilio Bertini” of Prato that physically traced the itineraries and periodically maintains the signage, and a team of experts with profound knowledge of the territory located in the Province of Prato, a collaboration which guarantees the high quality of the data and the reliability of the application.
