In their article “Audio-based narratives for the trenches of World War I: Intertwining stories, places and interaction for an evocative experience” the authors report in detail the co-design, setup and evaluation of a technological intervention for a complex outdoor heritage site: a World War I fortified camp and trenches located in the natural setting of the Italian Alps. Highlights from the article, as mentioned by the authors:

  • We show co-design, setup, and test of a digital interaction for an archaeological site.
  • The prototype is a visitor-aware personalised multi-point auditory narrative system.
  • Visitors interact with sound by walking and using NFC cards in a belt-like device.
  • Narratives had explicit reference to the territory and aimed at generate emotion.
  • The mix of sound, voices, personal stories, and immersive experience was very evocative.
