A new tourist attraction for the waterfall area
The beauty and complexity of the landscape of the Marmore Falls will be narrated through the use of cutting-edge digital and physical technologies (videomapping on plastic models, three-dimensional models, projections, holograms, augmented and immersive reality installations), allowing visitors to understand and enrich their visit to the waterfall with interesting topics, and to live a unique sensory and cultural experience.
This new space aims to increase the attractiveness of the area, rediscovering values and adding meanings to the visit: a door to the territory, its history and its many points of interest.

The Waterfal: l symbol of the city of steel
The Waterfal:l symbol of the city of steel The Marmore Falls shows how man has done his utmost, since Roman times, to design and build hydraulic works, first by draining the waters of the Velino and reclaiming the lands of its riverbed, then using the energy of the water.
Starting from the second half of the nineteenth Century this territory was revolutionized for the exploitation of hydraulic energy as driving force of factories, up to the creation and development of the great industrial center in Terni: the territory was transformed thanks to impressive infrastructures, becoming a complex system made of dams, tunnels, pipelines, power plants, factories, where the waterfall becomes the symbol of the city of steel.
The Galleto power plant is still today the management center of the largest hydroelectric nucleus in Central Italy.
