From today you can discover the city of Cernobbio through the stories of its inhabitants: “Cernobbio Tales”. This one is specifically designed to visit our city in a “new” way, and is available for free for both iOS and Android, in the relevant stores. Download it and go on the hunt for stories of Cernobbio’s life.
Its operation is very easy: walking through the streets of Cernobbio, and thanks to devices (beacons) that use Bluetooth technology, you can see directly on your mobile phones and tablets, in some particular points of interest, short videos in which some citizens tell an anecdote related to the context: a special opportunity to enjoy the historical, landscape, gastronomic, artistic heritage through an unusual and exclusive point of view. We have created a modern and technological service but accessible to everyone, which allows us to enhance our history and our city.
In particular, in this first version of the app, ten videos involving ten different points of interest have been made available. I’ll show you the places we have chosen for this route: Villa Bernasconi, Villa d’Este (seen from the Riva di Cernobbio), the former Galoppatoio di Villa Erba, Via Cinque Giornate with the workers’ quarter and a starred restaurant, the Town Hall, Villa Erba, the landing stage, Piazza Castello and the Riva.
