In recent times, information presentation has evolved towards sophisticated approaches that involve multi-modal aspects and character-based mediation.
This paper presents a novel methodology for creating information presentations based on a dramatization of the content exposition in two respects. On one side, the author plots a character's monologue that aims at achieving presentation goal and exhibits an engaging inner conflict; on the other side, the system architecture dynamically assembles the elementary units of the plot scripted by the author by implementing a tension between contrasting communicative functions.
The methodology has been applied in the implementation of a virtual guide to an historical site.
