This mobile phone application wants to provide useful tools to sensitize users about what was the Resistance movement during the Nazi-Fascist occupation of Italy, which erroneously is associated with acts of terrorism, misleading the historical memory of this unique movement in Italian history.
The application proposes different itineraries divided into two main groups: Fictional and Biographical that drive users in discovering symbols, places, people of the city that has been the protagonist of the Liberation War.
Each “story” is illustrated and narrated through vintage photos, quotes from Pesce and Vittorini’s books, music, testimonies of partisans and survivors who have lived on their own skin the partisan struggle.
In the fictional part, it is possible to listen to actors performing the book’s passage taken into consideration in the stops’ context. Users have in real-time, thanks to their geolocalization, all the information needed to start this walk in Metropolitan city of Milan.
