CONTRATEMPO / event design

Contratempo is a format of events designed for FICO Eataly World of Bologna. The history of Italian cuisine is narrated thanks to the use of augmented reality glasses, which amplify experience and the senses. The contratempo structure is a permeable wireframe, with a shuttle like shape, which allows the experience to be seen from the outside. The event is a time machine that allows the user to travel through flavors.
