Discover the beauty of Alghero through our games scattered around the city

A variety of physical and digital games distributed throughout the city

Play Alghero is the brand that identifies the system of games created within the framework of the European project MED GAIMS GAmifIcation for Memorable tourist experienceS, supported by the European Union within the ENI CBC Mediterranean Sea Basin Programme with a contribution of 2.1 million euros.

Fondazione Alghero is one of the partners in the project, which involves six other organisations in Lebanon, Spain and Jordan.

Their common purpose: to revolutionise the traditional visit to cultural sites by using gamification techniques and technologies, both analogue and digital, to innovate and make unique the experience of those visiting the territories involved in the project.

Thanks to MED GAIMS, 10 games have been realised in Alghero, 5 physical and 5 digital, with the participation of active citizens, cultural associations, young gaming enthusiasts and professionals.
