The same places we see everyday can get an unique appeal if our favorite actor has been there. “Limen” wants to create a bridge between movie fiction and reality in Milan, a city which has been set of a huge amount of films. Ideal users are both people living their routine in the city and movie lovers or experts.

Users, thanks to the application, can check if they are close to places in Milan where have been shot movie scenes. If they wear headphones, they’ll start hearing their soundtrack increasing or decreasing their volume according to the distance. When they reach the right place, they can unlock the video of the scene starting their camera and pointing it, thanks to augmented reality. 

At the same time, people living in Milan can re-discover their cities, while tourists and movie-lovers can find the set of their favourite films!
