Florence’s Duomo Introduces Self-distancing TAG

Florence’s Duomo has introduced gadgets worn around the neck that will allow people to visit the celebrated cathedral, while still respecting safe distances.

Italy’s most frequented cultural sites are anxious to reopen and recoup lost tourism euros during Italy’s two-month lockdown, while assuring visitors it is safe to do so.

The Duomo said in a statement Saturday that the device will be handed out for free at the beginning of each visit. When two people approach within a range of 2 metres (6.5 feet), the device will beep softly, vibrate and flash: EGOpro social Distancing TAG by AME.

“First in the world to use it in the museum context, this system guarantees the maximum of security and comfort during the visit,” said the cathedral, whose official name is the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore.
The devices will be disinfected after each use.

Timothy Verdon, director of the Duomo Museum, said that the cathedral, the adjacent Baptistery and the museum planned to open its doors to Florentines and the city’s visitors “in the upcoming days.”
