Dear Mauro,

My name is Sonia Merlo, I’m project manager at Red Raion, an independent CGI studio specialised in media-based attractions and smart content for entertainment and culture. We are based in Sicily.. The mission of the company is to support institutions, museums, cultural centers, and tourism operators in choosing the most efficient immersive contents for their VR, XD and interactive attractions.

Our expertise can be summarised as follows:

– Development of Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality applications for culture and tourism.
– Production of CGI interactive content for any kind of hardware support and attraction.
– Production of custom VR / 5D movies / Dome movies.
– Development of top quality Video Games, Serious Games and Gamification applications.
– Experience in project dissemination and exploitation.

I have seen in the Interreg Euro-MED portal that you have published a partners’ search for the project you are developing on Improving river ecosystems with Nature Based Solutions, in which we would like to participate by bringing our expertise in the digitalisation of any form of cultural heritage – if foreseen in your project. You can see – for instance – one of the research projects we are carrying out with the cooperation of Italian Universities and Museums, AUGUSTUS (, in which we are developing an immersive serious game to explore historical and archaeological aspects of 4 UNESCO sites in Sicily.

If you want to discuss any potential cooperation in the development of a project under this call for proposals or other similar opportunities, please do not hesitate to contact me at

Kind Regards,

Sonia Merlo
