Yes, the City of Art gets an App… the press materials call it “a window always open” on Pietrasanta (and not only Pietrasanta, but the whole surrounding Versilia area. There was a presentation led by Alessandro Balbusso, President of “Le Botteghe di Pietrasanta” this week, which detailed the App’s features.
Through the App – which is available for smart-phones and tablets – one can get listings of events, suggestions of where to eat, tips on special shopping deals, and last-minute sales events.
The App, which is aimed at residents and tourists will be free – the App is scheduled for release on June 1st, and participation by any art-related concern (galleries excepted) is free. Commercial endeavors will pay a yearly fee of 100 euros – which the developers say will be re-invested in Pietrasanta.
For more information, and to be a part of the App, you can contact Alessandro Balbusso at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also visit Le Botteghe di Pietrasanta’s fb page, linked here, for the latest developments in the run-up to the App’s release.
