The Unicorno Isterico 🦄

A new adventure has begun and is called Unicorno Isterico 🦄!
We have renewed our Youtube channel with a subject that will concern many themes. The goal?  Concreteness and useless speeches.

How much does an app cost? I have an idea, can you help me to develop it? I have a startup but I haven’t money to invest, how can I do? Is an app better than a web app? What’s the difference between a hybrid app and a native app? Do you develop for Huawei? Do you recommend to build an app on one platform?

Everyday we receive a lot of questions, these up here are only the most popular. The truth is that our job, the market, the time in which we are living, have forced us to have a 360° training on the world of digital

More and more often those who turn to us don’t just need simply a technological support to develop a software, customers today need someone to help them and follow them on path that is not purely technological  but that goes from setting up an entrepreneurial activity, from refining the initial idea with well-defined processes, from finding funds, branding design and software integration within their systems and processes.

The Unicorno Isterico was born with the aim to providing supporto to those who, out of necessity, vocation or entrepreneurial impulse find themselves interacting with digital. In this subject we will face many different aspects that go in the same direction and with the same goal, train future entrepreneurs, inform companies, warn against possible problems and rip-offs to have a healthy relationship , balanced and profitable of digital tools.

Why did we call him “L’Unicorno Isterico”? We explain it to you in this first video where we are going to present the project!

World Backup Day: save your data!

Backup Day

March 31 is the World Backup Day, the world day to rise awareness of the importance of saving data and files.
Because it will be happened to everyone to lost that holiday’s photo or that important document and then cursed for not backing up!

Today is definitely the best day to make our backup and also to schedule the next… you can’t wait for the next World Backup Day! And if you’re not convinced, here are some data and information to make you rush to remove the cobwebs from your hard drives!

The backup

We all know what backup is, and we know it’s very important to keep all our files and data safe that we don’t want to lose. Don’t forget that is also useful for our pc and smartphone, which will be lightened and return to be fast and to the best of its capabilities. There are two ways to secure files and data: there are those who prefer to use external support, such as a nice capacious hard disk, or those who prefer do it online, with the most classic Dropbox or Google Drive (which anyway have a limited space) or with paid cloud storage servicesvery useful especially for work and businesses. Then there are also those who want to be 100% safe and therefore use both!

The importance of saving our data

According to the “2020 Cyber Protection Week Survey” that Acronis carried put on 3.000 people in 11 countries around the world. 91% of respondents say that backup once a year. It sounds like a good percentage but think about how many thins we do with our smartphone or our computer in 365 days. Photos, document, important document, projects… and more and more. Are we sure that once a year is enough?

Let’s think above all about the risks to which our data and files are subject: the attack of a virus, a lost mobile phone, a computer that stops working, but also simply an error that makes us lose that document that we had been working on for days!
And then there are the new cyber security dangers that in recent years are often on the front pages of newspaper (
which thanks to their “popularity” have made users be more attentive: 88% of users strive to improve their online privacy and security!)

Climb the ranking of Modigliani Livorno


Modigliani Livorno is a challenge: discovered places and found objects generate points. Check your progress and your position in the world ranking of users like you who are exploring the city and become the best Modì Explorer!

As we explained in the previous article (click here if you missed it!) the app is a game and tests you in searching for secret places in Livorno, solving clues and finding hidden objects

All this generates points that will allow you to climb the leaderboard with all the users who like you are exploring the city and trying to be the best Modi Explorer.

In scoring, it affects how many places and objects you have found, but even when it took you to do so: if someone was faster than you to solve the clue and find the hidden object, it will have scored more points than you!

In the Progress section, you’ll be able to control at what point of your exploration you are, how many places you still have to discover. You’ll also be able to see your score and ranking, discovering the score of your challengers.

Are you ready to be the number one?!?!

Play with Modigliani Livorno


A tribute to Modigliani, an opportunity to know better a great artist, but also a game: Modigliani Livorno is all this!
Here are a guide to play with the app!

Here are the instructions to play your best!The real heart of the app is the Map, which is accessed by tapping the Map button, between History and Progress, which you see in the bar at the bottom of the screen.
You’ll be asked to choose your nickname, which is the name you want to be identified with in the game. You can choose the one that is listed by default or change it later from the Progress section.

From the map begins your exploration of Livorno, the search for those places that can tell you a piece of the life of Amedeo Modigliani.

Here’s a guide to learning how to play your best with our app!

Step 1 – Top 5 Places to Discover

There are 5 places marked with a symbol on the map. You’ll have to physically reach them, exploring the city, to find out what they have to tell you about Modigliani and how they can help you discover other places related to the artist.


  • To play you have to be in Livorno… you’ve never seen a treasure hunt at a distance, have you?
  • The starting point of the exploration are the places you see on the map, indicated by colored symbols. They are 5, of five different colors (blue, red, yellow, green and light blue), and each of them is placed on the map at the place you will have to physically reach.
  • By clicking on one of the symbols you see on the map, you can view the address to help you reach it.
  • Each place, once reached will show you a text that will tell you something more about the story of the artist.

Step 2 – Discover the secret places

The main places unlock other secret places nearby. To complete the exploration of one area, that is to discover all the points united by the same color, find the secret places!


  • Once you’ve reached one of the visible places, you’ll unlock the points of interest in the surroundings, they are the secret places. They are identified by colored areas of the same color as the main place.
  • Reaching each area, you’ll find the secret place and you’ll be able to access the new text that will tell you why that place is important to Modigliani. The secret location discovered is indicated on the map with a symbol of the color of the area you are exploring, with a key inside it.
  • Find all the secret locations to complete your exploration of an area

Step 3 – Clues and hidden objects

Once you’ve found all the places in the area you were exploring, the game gets tough: the clues come! If you can solve them, you’ll be able to find hidden objects!


  • You’ve found all the secret locations and completed your exploration of that area.
  • Now test yourself with the clues: they are riddles to be solved in order to understand where we have hidden some objects related to Modigliani.
  • If you understand where the item is hidden, reach out to it and find out if you’re right!
  • Once you’ve discovered all the secret locations in all areas to explore, and you’ve solved all the clues and found all the secret items… you’ll have the last clue that will lead you to find (if you’re good!) the last hidden object, the most important!

Get help from the drawer!


To guide you through the exploration, use the drawer, that you can access by dragging up the gray bar at the bottom the map. It’s a valuable tool that helps you understand where you stand!
Here’s what you can find in the drawer

  • The main places from which to start, with their address
  • A short sentence that gives you information about your situation and how to continue
  • If you see so many question points it means that that area is still unexplored
  • Brush: You have found the first place, the one visible
  • Key: You found one or more secret locations
  • Magnifying glass: you’ve arrived at the clue
  • The last symbol is the secret object… and we certainly won’t tell you what you’ll find, we don’t want to take away the fun!
  • If the symbols flash, it means that you have not read the text they give access to. Click on the flashing symbol to read the article or clue.

Well, are you ready to play for real?

Modigliani Livorno. All about Modigliani’s life and career


On History you can retrace the main stages of Modigliani’s life, between Livorno and Paris, between myth and reality, and the development of his artistic career. You can check these insights  from anywhere, comfortably from your smartphone.

If you want to know more about the artist before start to looking for Modigliani’s places, tap on History. Here you can retrace Modigliani’s history and career. It is not a simply report but we highlight the fundamental elements to understand who Modigliani was.
You can find many well known information but probably you can learn also something new and find some curious information.
Let’s take a few examples, but without telling you too much otherwise we would take away the taste of discovery!

The Garsin family was vary learned. His mother Eugenia and his grandfather Isaac took care of the education of the young Amedeo, who in fact was always noted for his knowledge of literature, philosophy and his mastery of the French.

Modigliani had the opportunity to visit many places: the centre and the south of Italy, Florence, Venice, Paris and the south of France. Each of these places helped to create a very vast set of artistic models that gave rise to a unique style.

The artist didn’t like to paint landscapes, indeed we have just a few examples of landscape paintings: one of the times of the school of painting with Micheli and a few of the last years of his life.

These are some of the curiosities and insights you can find in the History.

Modigliani Livorno. The app you can’t miss!


Modigliani Livorno is here!
The app that will take you to discover the Livorno of Amedeo Modigliani, a tour to get to know the artist and his hometown.
Free and available for iOS and Android, Modigliani Livorno awaits you on the stores!

Amedeo Modigliani was born in Livorno, but was always too little present in his city and often known more for the legend that concerns him than for his true history.  If you think of Modigliani you think of Paris and few know the importance of Livorno in his life. Here he was not only born, but there were central episodes in his life, there were characters essential for his future and here he develop his cultural and artistic path.

So we said: why not create an easy-to-use, innovative and engaging tool that allows everyone to know more about this artist and his history connected to Livorno? A gift for the city and a tribute to this great artist!


This is how Modigliani Livorno was born, the app that accompanies you to discover the places of Modigliani in Livorno. A tool that proposes an interactive and innovative approach to the cultural art world, in which the user feels at the center.

Because the app not only invites you to go to the places in Livorno that we have chosen as the most significant for the life of the artist and that we tell you through a text, but also invites you to have fun. In addition to the places, in fact, there are hidden objects that complete your search, but they will not be so easy to find: there are riddles to solve. Every place found and every hidden object discovered will make you accumulate points and climb the ranking of users who are exploring Livorno like you.
Not only curiosity and insights but also involvement and fun.

The development of this app has involved the whole Oimmei’s team. We are really proud of it and we wish you like as we do!

Oimmei supporting Muzeums at MuseumNext

  • Oimmei supporting Muzeums at MuseumNext

New York, Nov. 14-16 2016

Being part of such a big project like Muzeums need us to tour around the world promoting it, helping it grow. Unlike in 2015, when we were in London for the TechCrunch Disrupt, this time was New York, attending one the biggest conference for museums, aiming to shape the future of museums in the next year.

Muzeums was one of the key sponsors of MuseumNext NY, one of the 2 conference of 2016, following the one in Dublin, before moving to Sydney on Feb. 2017. The New York venue was spectacular, right in the heart of Manhattan, in Tribeca at the BMCC (Borough of Manhattan Community College). We were eyesight from the World Trace Center and the new Freedom Tower on one side, and the piers for Liberty Island on the other side, right in the middle of one of the most thriving part of Manhattan.

At the conference we had the onor to speak during one of the panels, and show our product for the first time outside Europe. The response was awesome, a lot of people told us that our product could really change the way people interact with museums and at the same time help small museums gain access to technologies only available to big partners until today. We’re looking forward to spread our products on the US museums in 2017, and our main goal is that on your next vacation you can have a Muzeums experience while visiting your next museum!

Internet Day Livorno

oimmei internet day livorno evento

It’s been exactly 39 years since that April 30th 1986, when Italy took his part into the history of Internet. A signal took off from the CNR in Pisa, thanks to the effort of Stefano Trumpy, a young researcher, arriving in Pennsylvania. By that time no one really understood the implications of that experiment, but that’s how everything started.

It’s really important to Understand where it all began and at the same time it helps us shape the future of what’s ahead. On April 29th in Livorno, our home city, took place the Internet Day Livorno, an event to celebrate the beginning of Internet, to draw a line on the present and to trying to imagine the future.
We as Oimmei have been pleased to speak at the conference.

Speaking for us was Simone Figlié, Lead iOS Developer at Oimmei, our talk obviously was about Mobile, particularly regarding Apps, whose story is naturally more recent than Internet but as compelling as its. After a brief introduction about mobile devices history, we spoke about the concept of App as we know it today and how it all started. We dwell into how App are distributed, how people generally tend to use them and of course a glimpse of what’s in hold for the future specifically regarding the convergence of Apps in many aspects of our lives in and out of homes.

If you like to dig deeper you can download our presentation here: There’s an App for that. How Internet changed with the coming of smartphones.


Oimmei & Muzeums Live @TechCrunch Disrupt

We Are Oimmei!

oimmei team agency


Who are we?
Oimmei! It’s pronounced O-I-M-M-E-I [ôimmèi]

How long have you been on the market?
Officially we are a company from less than a year, after various personal experiences in other companies and as freelancers.

What do we do?
Mostly we develop Apps and Mobile Solutions, Web Applications and Web Sites. We’re constantly looking for new partners and exciting projects, projects that can help us became better, expand our networks, face new challenges and develop innovative solutions.

Why in Italy?
Work in Italy it’s not easy. Decide to basecamp in Livorno it’s a challenge. But our roots are here, and it’s the only place where Oimmei could have born.

Why do you like your job?
Because we play instead of work! Each day we face new kind of technologies, and every new thing it’s a motivation to discover new technological frontiers: sometimes the game can be hard, challenging, with difficult rules, but in the end what’s left is the pleasure of doing something with a lot of meaning for ourselves and other people.

How much does it cost to make an App, a Project?
This is the most frequent question, and the sole answer is: it depends! There are some many aspects that’s impossible to determine a general price. Each project has the basic principle, it has to be studied deeply, it’s hurdles, it’s winning points as well as the loose ones, and only after this process we could give an estimate. For example an App could cost 2.000€ as well as 30.000€, it much depends on the quality of the final product, the possible interactions inside the App like Social Networks or similar, if it has to integrate with a website, the number of languages and many other aspects.

What are the key points of a successful product?
Think big, but start small. The main risk is to want to develop everything at once, have a great idea and thinking about develop all the aspects in the first release could be very dangerous, you could risk to waste a lot of energy and don’t achieve the goal. One other aspect is making a good planning, a key aspect for the success of every kind of project from the smallest one to the next Facebook rival. Plan from the start and knowing from the beginning each aspect of an App and how it could evolve in time is the key for avoiding face unexpected hurdles or slow bumps during the development. Our motto is plan first, then get dirty in the code.

What’s the project that you liked the most, and why?
It’s not easy to answer that! Each one of them has been important and teach us something, for example it meant a lot to us finding good partners in Livorno like Inlinea Spa that asked us to develop the App AsteGiudiziarie, a service to showcase auctions, but on the other end it’s vital for us to look outside Italy, first partecipati at the contest Apps4Europe in Manchester where we showed our innovative solution for tourism, combining OpenData and  iBeacon technology, Europeana Beacon, and after that Muzeums, an amazing London Startup who aims to revolutionise the way people will visit a museum in the near future. Last but not least we’re focusing on in house projects, coming solely from our passion, like the App Park And Share, where you can share with family and close friends the exact location of your last parking, or the web portal Oggi A Teatro, a site dedicated to the theatres and acting companies in our city Livorno, that we wanted to be a gift to our city.

We Are Europeana: Oimmei and Muzeums at the Europeana Network Association AGM 2015

oimmei muzeums europeana network associations agm

On 3 and 4th of November Oimmei has been invited to partecipate at the annual meeting of Europeana Members, a two days event where organisations and influential people from all over the world gathered to discuss and plan what will be the future of cultural heritage in the next years.
We were indeed very pleased to be invited as well, as members of the Europeana Network for our efforts in projects like Europeana Beacons and the latest Muzeums, that are aiming to transforms the way people will interact with monuments and experience a visit to a museum.

We are Europeana has been the motto of the whole convention, because indeed all the people there participating have the ability to shape the way people will perceive culture in the coming years, with their ideas or their projects, some of them bolder that others. The highlight of the event has surely been the “fly your europeana dream” moment, where all the attendees had wrote on paper planes ideas and let them flew over the auditorium for been collected and reviewed later by the Europeana Commission.

Following that there’s been a private evening at the prestigious Rijksmuseum, where we were able to attend a close visit to the Gallery of Honour, something like a Night at The Museum movie!
We alongside our friend and CEO of Muzeums, David Pond, had the change to unveil for the first time our new project Muzeums, and we had such a tremendous response by the people, from academics to museum curators, that give us the boost to go even further and planning bold moves for the new few weeks.
You’ll surely find us at the London TechCrunch Disrupt on December 7th and 8th in London, we’ll be waiting for you.


AGM 2015 – Fly your Europeana dream from Europeana on Vimeo.

Oimmei is going to Muzeums

techcrunch london muzeums

Hi everyone! We’re thrilled to announce that we’re going to be part of an exciting new adventure. Oimmei will be part of a new startup called Muzeums, with only one goal in mind: redefining the way people experience a normal visit in a museum.

Here’s a short summary of what Muzeums will be:

“Muzeums is an app and platform for museums that help museum visitors get a unique individual experience based on their personal interests and learning style. It does that by dynamically rearranging tagged, location based & experiential content. In other words, when you use Muzeums, the app will create, on the spot, an experience that is tailored specifically for you,­ with the content that you’re interested in, and even delivered in a way you’d prefer, be it a media tour guide or a real-­time interactive social game.”

We’ve been contacted few months ago by David Lachmish, CEO and founder of Muzeums, because he needed talented people that could bring his vision into mobile Apps, and we couldn’t have been more pleased to embark in it.

Recently Muzeums has been accepted in the prestigious Seedrs platform, a crowdfunding platform where you can fund startups and receive equity shares, it’s the most important crowdfunding platform in UK. If you’d like to be part of this project too, you can still grab a little piece of Muzeums yourself, otherwise we’ll be excited for you to try our platform on your next museum visit.

Future Everything 2015, the diary

Europeana app mobile ios

We came back from the Future Everything in Manchester where we had the pleasure to meet so many extraordinary people. We couldn’t manage to win the first prize, but getting to know Enric Senabre Hidalgo (CEO di Goteo), who decided to choose our project as a crowdfunding case study for the workshop, it’s been great! All started Thursday morning, when we first met our “enemies” like Lars the dutch giant, who undoubtly has been the most easy going with a lot of passion for talking! Then, as soon as we arrived in a great co working space (SpaceportX) we took a micro workshop about how to successfuly start a crowdfunding campaign, during which we worked closely with Milena Popova from Europeana and after about 40 minutes of brain storming we presented our project for the first time in front of an international audience.

That afternoon, as soon as we arrived at the Town Hall, we’ve met Enric: he was already familiar with our project, we started to describe it in detail and then he decided to use the Europeana Beacon as an example for starting a crowdfunding campaign! It’s been quite a brain storming and many of the partecipants fall in love with the project. The day ended with new friendship, new ideas and a new vision for it!

“Good Morning. We’re the guys from yesterday…” this has been our motto during the pitch brainstorming: no one had the slightest idea on how to make a pitch! In the end it has been very easy even if the tension was high but also the adrenaline that came at the very end before starting! After that a couple of hours of boring waiting: “Some journalists would want to interview you guys, they’ll be here shortly!”, “Five more minutes and they’ll be here!”, “Hi Guys, I’m from the press office, we’re almost ready for you.”, “Sorry Guys, the journalists had to go!” luckily we had the time to explore the event and had a chat with the other partecipants. Then it came the moment to meet the jury, a scheduled 20 minutes interview, that in the end lasted 35 minutes! Freedom at last!!!

15 minutes of Hotel relax, then a nice walk towards the Royal Northern College of Music where the Awards Ceremony would took place. Just the time for a crafted beer at the Thiristy Scholar and then we jumped into the party! During the ceremony we were all excited, maybe we started to belive we could win, anyhow after had watched the pitches we knew from the start that the competition would be high: we particulary liked the french project of Plume Labs regarding the air quality in big cities, Allryder to plan the best course using public transportation and the project Bileit who aims to solve the last minute ticket purchase problem for events, maybe because one of us is also an artistic director for a local troupe. When finally they announced the winner, GoOV the project presented by Lars, we’ve been very happy! His project aimed to help people with mental disabilities or dementia to travel safely with public transport, we need to be honest initially it left us perplexed (jokingly we thought “a smartphone in the hand of a mental disable people could last like a cat on a freeway”), but after had talk to Lars who explained to us in the detail how it works and what it aims to accomplish we fell in love with it, mostly becuase of it’s social importance, for the extraordinary results they have already achived (84% of the test subjects switched completly to public transport instead of taxi), but most of all for the passion and love Lars had put in this project!

We came back home at last, with a great experience, new friendships like Lars, the girls that worked with us during the crowdfunding workshop: Hellen, Geraldine and Ina, that had won one of the awards for Europeana Creative, then Enric and Anne Marie from Goteo, and last but not least Milena and James from Europeana, who believe a lot in our project.
Back in Livorno we completed to moving to our new offices and since today we’re back in business with new and freash energies!

Europeana Beacon App

europeana beacon app ios smart tourism

Here we go! This is the new prototype for the Future Everything Festival in Manchester, thanks to Europeana and Apps4Europe for this opportunity.

Some words about the App:

Europeana Beacon combine the power of the Europeana Open Data with the latest cutting edge technology of iBeacons.
Users can walk around the city and have the phone alert them when something worthwhile is nearby, allowing people to discover new places in a new way. Users can read or listen comprensive guides about each landmark they discover, while watching pictures and videos. Engage other people in a scavenger hunt looking for the next clue, or follow the custom paths curators have tailored for them.
As a curator you can have all kind of statistics about how and often each landmark is visited.”

Apps4Europe Awards Winners – Europeana Beacon

apps for europe

Our last efforts were greatly paid back! Thank you to Hyperborea s.r.l. & Europeana and all who organized the #hack4pisa!

We recently participated the Hack4Pisa, a two-day hackathon in Pisa to show how creative re-use of cultural content can create social and economic value. In a few words, the contest wanted the participants to come out with ideas which take advantage of the huge Europeana database, through the public APIs.

The environment was very informal and friendly, Hyperborea Srl organized the event right into the  Polo Tecnologico of Navacchio . A perfect pressure-less atmosphere to be focused on the results. And the results came out quite good.

We were already studying, for our own R&D sake, iBeacon(r) technology when Matteo Lorenzini invited us to the Hackaton.

Honestly, in a few words, this is how it went:

Why don’t we just merge the two things togheter?

And so it came out. The hackaton main themes, Culture, Tourism and Gamification, and iBeacon technology would spouse perfectly for such a matter, indeed. So they did, through our Europeana Beacon App! Feel free to snoop around the App’s mini-site, we’re quite sure you will be mostly impressed!

See you in Manchester at Future Everything 2015
