NeoRealismo Virtuale (NeRVi) is an innovative approach through which digital ubiquitous technologies are used to create, access and visualize additional layers to the ordinary reality, creating stratified continums in which digital content is interconnected interactively with the physical world. Mobile devices, wearable technologies, interactive architectures, Spimes and wide tagging techniques are used for this purpose, creating environments that describe new forms of urban scenarios that encompass the possibility to represent augmented information and communication practices, creating innovative opportunities for relation and interaction. The city becomes a layered reality, creating connections among quantitative information sources, interpretative layers, emotional and relational domains: traversing urban spaces can in turn, become a form of writing, reading and relating/interacting with both humans and information systems. NeoRealismo Virtuale (a mobile application using the same name of the theory) enacts such processes in visual ways; Holo enacts them using spatialized sounds and audio. Both revolve around augmented reality applications that implement ubiquitously accessible sensorial Social Networks in which digital contents can be published by multiple authors and agents in physical spaces of urban environments, and experienced by using extremely accessible mobile interfaces, creating new forms of information, communication, relation and interaction.
