Canaletto 2.0 is a Warsaw game of perceptivity which follows the footsteps of the Venetian,
Bernardo Belotto, also known as Canaletto - through his paintings, who was the court
painter of the King Stanislaw August. The idea of the game is to walk along Krakowskie
Przedmiescie, from Nowy Swiat Street to the Castle Square in Warsaw. Five paintings of
Canaletto will guide through the capital, in which the painter has captured Warsaw during its
heyday in the second half of the 18th century. The app consists of two parts: PLAY and
PLAY is based on the idea of painted figures, pieces of architecture and other elements from
later times than Canaletto. This creates the through-time collages. The players' task is to
discover and point out the elements added to the original image.
In addition to the GAME, the application provides the EXPLORE option, thanks to which the
recipient has the opportunity to get to know Warsaw from the times of Canaletto and learn
many interesting facts about its architecture, residents and guests visiting the capital, their
costumes and customs.
Both the app and the website are available in two language versions: Polish (PL) and English
