The new section 'WunderBO Aldrovandi Experience' takes you on a discovery of the city of Bologna, in an immersive and engaging experience, suitable for children and families and also for tourists, through six places linked to this extraordinary character.
Following Ulisse Aldrovandi through a journey to discover the city, the player must find some animals or symbols taken from his illustrated books, starting in search of the reference sites and collecting them thanks to clues and indications useful for completing the journey. When the GPS detects the player in the Bologna area, a map of the center is shown and a first-person story by Ulisse Aldrovandi begins the adventure.
The route is a sort of cultural trek of about two hours, which allows you to check your progress and view the completion of the gallery of illustrations.
