This paper describes a Virtual Reality system in order to convey a vivid experience of the appearance, history and context of Cultural Heritage assets through Digital Storytelling, and to encourage the visitor to visit the real place he is virtually immersed in. The storytelling experience is implemented using Mixed Reality technologies and Digital Storytelling techniques, in order to "tell a story" with narrative and emotional characteristics. The storytelling technologies are a good mean to wake up the visitors interest, and to facilitate the understanding of the contextual information of the cultural asset.
