Gesso is a guide to understanding the world through places and objects that shape society. Our purpose is to inspire empathy and to celebrate human creativity by exploring physical spaces and tangible objects that embody our collective heritage, history and wisdom.

Named after the priming layer applied to a canvas before crafting a masterpiece, Gesso makes audio-first, geo-responsive digital guides that go under the surface of cities and museum collections— presenting the world’s treasures through exclusive original content, a curated selection of the best podcasts, and official audio guides through iconic cultural institutions.
