Mobile Application for two WHSs in Ticino

In 2012 ORANGE SA has donated its Swiss Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) budget for a project to design and develop a mobile application for the two UNESCO WHSs in Ticino, i.e. the natural site of Monte San Giorgio and the cultural site of the Castles of Bellinzona. The project is currently being implemented at lab (USI). Important to note, that the two WHSs in Ticino make a unique combination of cultural and natural heritage in one region and this distinctive match could serve for designing an innovative application encompassing both types of UNESCO heritage. Thus, the application could become a prototype and be extended to Switzerland’s level encompassing all eleven WHSs, and possibly becoming a showcase on a global scale.
