Abstract

The urban landscape of the city of L’Aquila has undergone profound changes because of the 2009 earthquake. In particular, there has been a gap between the tangible immanence of places, outcome of history that brought them to the present, and the dimension of the intangible as the intersection between memory and everyday life. In this context, applications of augmented reality offer themselves as an instrument of intersection between history and memory. Augmented reality becomes a complex storytelling tool, where the balance between the authoritative aspect of history and the participative re-meaning of urban sites can be summarized.
