Immerse yourself in the Baths of Diocletian at the time of the 4th century AD Romans, and at the same time discover every little detail of it. Today, it is possible thanks to the immersive 3D visit among the extraordinary remains of this majestic plant, frequented above all by wealthy landowners and aristocrats who lived in the Esquilino, Quirinale and Viminale districts.
An innovative technology, the Cardboard Virtual Reality, a VR viewer and a smartphone with geo-referencing, combined with a precious audio guide that integrates the traditional tour itinerary, show us the Baths in all their ancient splendour.
The visit begins with an introductory video that tells the whole thermal complex throughout history, from the Empire to the 16th century transformations by Pius IV commissioned to Michelangelo, and continues with a six stages journey, each corresponding to an environment including the Natatio, the largest swimming pool in the Empire: 4000 square meters which, thanks to the viewer, regain all their original beauty.
Polychrome marble floors, walls, colonnades and mosaics, shapes and colours; all the rooms and decorations have been deeply studied, to achieve the perfect visual restoration and the reconstruction of every element of this extraordinary place that, though passed through centuries of destruction and abuse - from prestigious thermal building to stables, meeting room and then quarries for building materials - still retains its immortal charm.
