Italia del Père-Lachaise, a mobile application initiated by TERIA

As a homage to famous Italian personalities, the Consulate General and the COMITES (Committee of Italians Residing Abroad) have launched the editorial project “l’Italia del Père-Lachaise”. From this project was born an interactive application that allows to geolocate the location of the tombstones of the Père Lachaise Cemetery.

The Italy of Père-Lachaise – Extraordinary Lives of Italians from France and French from Italy is a new cultural project of the COMITES in collaboration with the Consulate General of Italy in Paris with the contribution of the Directorate General for Italians Abroad and Migration Policies. This project aims to enhance the memory of 60 famous people, both Italian and French of Italian origin, whose graves are located in the Père-Lachaise Cemetery, the largest in Paris and one of the most famous in the world.

The project includes :

  • an original map of Père Lachaise with the graves of the characters,
  • a handbook with the routes to be followed and a brief description of each character,
  • a bilingual illustrated volume,
  • a smartphone application allowing interactive exploration of monuments.

This editorial project inspired the idea of creating an interactive mobile application created by TERIA, sponsor of the artist Virginio Vona, who was commissioned to create an original comic strip “l’Italia del Père Lachaise, il canto del Gallo”. TERIA was therefore chosen to manage the design of this geolocation application.
