Microtouristic experiences, place-based storytelling

We build engaging narrative environments that enhance the exploration and visiting experience of tourists and locals.

How might we effectively preserve and communicate the cultural heritage related to a specific place? How might we transform cultural heritage in real microtouristic experiences? Via both digital tools and physical facilities, Aru® develops and builds placebased narrative experiences and engages users while they’re immersed in the physical exploration of the place.

Architectural and exhibition design of an outdoor multipurpose space

Developed for Kaiti Expansion, the design for the Emilia-Romagna outdoor space at Expo2015 were sober and essential so that the communication elements, and the activities due to be sheltered there, would maintain the main visual role.

Within a short time frame we delivered a highly functional solution that met all the stakeholders need while providing space for a unique narration of the regional food and culturale heritage.

Renovation and extension of local winery building

Since 15 years at Storchi winery they build a reputation of refined wine producers. As the sales grow, production and exhibit spaces require extension, an optimization of the functional layout, as well as a renovated atmosphere and spatial design.

We designed and supervised a complete renovation of the existing building, with great attention to the most valuable spatial pivots such as the shop space and the aging rooms, where grapes are prepared to become raisin wine and where bottles rest to age.

Food promotion & shop space

A place where visitors taste local food and get relevant information on producers and the territory: a simple promotion-focused scheme that we fit into an historical villa, landmark of the food production area, in Bologna.

We delivered an integrated promotion environment comprised of: visual identity, interiors, exhibition furniture and appliances, plus storytelling tools designed to be implemented into full deployed strategies following the shop’s scaling plan.

Language training center interiors and identity strategy

A learning space that teachers can adapt to their own working schemes, and where students can find flexible areas enabling peer to peer confrontation. We designed this integrated environment involving classroom setting, school common spaces, visual communication and technologies layout.

“We want Idea Language Center to become a welcoming environment, inspiring openness and exchange while communicating thorough reliability for our service.”
