Skylab Studios S.r.l. , is a company that has been dealing with innovative services aimed at culture and tourism in public administrations for several years. Its core business is in the activity of creativity and design for communication in the public and private sectors, in services and in the consulting of communication, graphics and marketing. The goal of Skylab Studios is to offer the opportunity to give the territory and its resources greater visibility through an innovative technology with consequent new attractions for citizens and tourists and, also, an improvement and increase in the usability of services that will be used in an interactive, multilingual, personalized and accessible way, also for the deaf by means of the LIS (Sign Language) language. Skylab Studios is implementing another package for the accessibility of cultural heritage for people with sensory disability.

The need to give added value to the riches of the territory is becoming more and more important, innovating and offering new communication systems to meet the needs of increasingly digital tourism, increasingly interactive: a 2.0 or 360 ° tourism.

Some examples: the City of Genoa, Siena, Venice, Tarquinia and Salsomaggiore Terme. The same system (the qr code and the nfc chip) can also be used within a museum itinerary. AUGMENTED REALITY This is the most innovative technology we have. With this we create “talking paintings” and many other things. With this system we have created both outdoor and indoor installations such as the museum of the Great War of Fogliano Redipuglia, the magical Hall of Frescoes, we are completing Villa Medici del Vascello in San Giovanni in Croce (CR) MUSEUM IN 3D EQUIPMENT In particular, two museums stand out: The Great War Museum of Fogliano Redipuglia and Enel's “Memoria Estesa” In both cases we recovered very old photographic material, in “Memoria Estesa” we started from 1890, restored the images digitally and transformed into 3d. The visitor putting on the goggles for the 3D vision, the same ones used at the cinema, could see the images in three-dimension. VARIOUS MULTIMEDIA EQUIPMENT To conclude, there are multimedia installations using video projections, touch screens, qr code, virtual reality and augmented reality. Here the things that can be done are many compared to the available space and to the creativity of the project by mixing the various types of innovative solutions. Some examples of these stagings are: Museum of Prehistory and Protohistory of Manciano, La Rocca Multimediale of Città della Pieve, Palazzo della Corgna in Città della Pieve.
We deal mainly with the public sector (municipalities, cities, regions, etc.) because our core business is innovative tourist signage and multimedia installations for museums, to install in cities, museums, parks, etc. If we are successful in market penetration in Slovakia, we could need a local business partner to promote, distribute and cooperate (joint venture) with our projects. Our first and main interest is to secure B2B meetings with the key players in the Tourism and Cultural sectors of local government (Councillors, Mayors, National representatives, etc.) in order to verify the potential business for us in Slovakia.
