This contribution focuses on the topics of identity and memory and how Augmented Reality and Artificial Intelligence are a useful tool for the enhancement of some areas of study still not fully accepted from the cultural point of view.

Abstract

This contribution focuses on the topics of identity and memory and how Augmented Reality and Artificial Intelligence are a useful tool for the enhancement of some areas of study still not fully accepted from the cultural point of view. In particular, the objective of the study is the rediscovery of asylum complexes. These, before being conceived as places of therapy, were conceived as places of confinement and control of a social ‘problem’, for a long time managed within the walls in which the mentally ill were isolated. Through the application to a specific case in which Augmented Reality and Artificial Intelligence act in synergy, the contribution presents a research path aimed at restoring value to the identities of individual patients, hidden and denied first by necessity and then by the will of obliteration.
