The Story to live together

An advertising agency was commissioned by the managers of the Swabian Castle to create an original concept to promote the Castle on social media, the theme will be the re-enactment of the marriage between the son of Federico II, Manfredi of Swabia, and Elena of Epirus, which took place in 1259. To remain anchored to the facts and the iconographies of that time, the Agency involved Francesca, a well-known art historian, expert in the historical period of Federico II and Manfredi.
Don’t worry about setting up, Francesca thinks of everything, just bring your smartphone and all your creativity for the social media campaign!
