Wearing a latest generation VR viewer, the viewer will witness the founding of Rome by meeting Romulus; you will be able to witness the birth of the Foro Boario and the first wooden building of the Circus; then immerse yourself completely in Ancient Rome; stroll through the tabernae; and admire every single corner of the city.
So, to end the visit, the spectator will wear the viewer again to participate in a VR race at the Circus Maximus. He will choose the color of the horse; the name of the faction; will wait for the gates to open … AND GO! He will have to challenge his opponents and finish first to win the final prize. Running, bending right, dodging obstacles, driving a chariot between accidents, whipping and overtaking, falling and wiping sweat. A million sesterces and the emperor’s gratitude.
