A new way to communicate with citizens and tourists. The Subiaco Municipality introduces the City’s thousand-year-old history and its artistic and cultural heritage with two multimedia interactive tools: the QR code and Virtual Tour.
The QR code is a two-dimensional bar code that can be scanned using a smartphone camera. This opens the web page of the portal, where information and opening times can be found. The website also offers Virtual Tour, a selection of 360° HD photos that will take users on a virtual tour of the chosen location.
If you happen to be walking around Subiaco's streets and medieval squares, you might wonder what those black and white squares on tourist information signs and on the main monuments are...
Subiaco is the largest city in the upper Aniene Valley, and is located in the Simbruini Regional Park, the largest protected area in the Lazio region. The city offers many cultural attractions, beginning with the Benedictine monasteries of St. Scholastica and St. Benedict, rich in art and testament to the historical heritage of the area.
In ancient times, the area around Subiaco was inhabited by the Aequi, who were eventually defeated by the Romans in 304 BC after a long struggle for independence. Following the occupation of the upper Aniene Valley, the Romans built impressive aqueducts in the area.
