The further you go, the more the adventure seems connected to the fantastic legends and monsters of Savoy, until you will have no choice but to enter this world of legends using an immersive device of virtual reality which constitutes the second fictional space. Teleported in an imaginary cabinet of curiosity, the world of fairies, located at the crossroads of legends and the History of Savoy, you will have to manipulate virtually fantastic objects that will open you the doors of the past and the future and will offer you the access to other fiction spaces.
