What would it be like to play the role of a great Egyptologist? What is the origin of the plot of the “Aida” extraordinary story?

On the occasion of the temporary exhibition dedicated to Verdi’s Opera, the Polytechnic of Turin and Robin Studio experimented for the first time at the Museo Egizio with the use of virtual reality and gamification for the dissemination of cultural content.

The application is an immersive interactive experience in Virtual Reality optimized for Oculus whose purpose is to let the user learn something more about the activity of the Egyptologist and author of the original Aida subject: Auguste Mariette.

The video game consists of an Escape Room inside the Temple of Hathor in the Egyptian pavilion designed by Mariette for the Universal Exposition in Paris in 1867.


Done with Robin Studio in collaboration with the Egyptian Museum and Erixstudio.
