This paper describes the design principles and the main technical solutions of an interactive multimedia guide for an art exhibition about Ethiopian Christian art at Ca’ Fos- cari in Venice, Italy. The guide has been implemented on an iPod touch, aiming at coupling rich multimedia content with a natural interaction style. The design is based on the Apple version of the Webkit development environment, interfaced with an application layer that intercepts the vis- itor gestures, offering a natural interaction style on top of standard web-oriented gestures.
