In a city like Alicante, mostly dedicated to tourism and entertainment, leisure facilities and structures succeeded without being valued as local heritage. The installation is paired by a mobile app that rebuilds fragments of movies, baths, and ballrooms built between 1917 and 2017, so to come back to life a second time. The project doesn’t want to be a nostalgic quest, but rather a contemporary interactive attraction.
