Welcome to GHETT/APP!
The itinerary you are going to explore allows you to learn about the history of the Venetian Ghetto. The contents you will see correspond with the exhibition Venice, the Jews and Europe, organized in conjunction with the Quincentennial year of the Jewish Ghetto. GHETT/APP encourages visitors to experience the features and transformation of the Ghetto over time within the historical physical space of the Jewish neighborhood. There is no preordered path to follow! Wander the space, experience its uniqueness, and get to the heart of the Ghetto, thanks to GHETT/APP.
Our focus is on helping you understand easily urban change over time. For this purpose, we have created a layered augmented reality environment with textual descriptions/audio and instructions at each point of interest. For every stop, read the text and learn how to explore the bonus content. GHETT/APP is edited by Visualizing Venice (Duke University, University of Padua, Università IUAV di Venezia).
