Home  /  How it works

Voices from the Colosseum requires a mobile device with Google Goggles installed and being at the Colosseum area in Rome (but not necessarily).

If you are not in Rome you can still use the project taking a virtual tour of the area on this website, opening up photos of the monuments and taking pictures of the screen with Google Goggles app. You can still watch the movie clips from you mobile device.
