A new pilot project for guided tours of the monumental complex of the Fondazione Giorgio Cini will start on 1 March 2018. Tours will be available every day of the week, thanks to the collaboration of the
Florentine company D’Uva Workshop, which has created a special video-guided itinerary. The tour will take visitors to the two cloisters, Palladio’s Refectory with the Wedding at Cana, the photography room,
the monumental stairway, Longhena’s Library, the Nuova Manica Lunga and the Borges Labyrinth.

Moreover, the hand-held touchscreen technology enables visitors to enjoy a unique experience: through photos, videos and interviews, they can create a personalised memory of the tour experience. Available in five languages (Italian, English, Spanish, French and German), the video guide has 17 stops on a one-hour tour and can also be used by children thanks to an easy-to-use intuitive interface. The project has been implemented with the parenership of Assicurazioni Generali Spa.
