The path

The Archetipo Tour project intends to boost the attractiveness of the Mantuan Oltrepò territory pointing on the archaeological heritage, to be rediscovered with immersive, interactive and participatory modes. Through augmented reality, educational workshops, performances and narrative expositions, these experiential proposals are integrated with the tourist systems of the Po River and its Mantuan tributaries.
