About DVD event

Different cultures, buildings, and neighbourhoods belonging to distinct eras and styles coexist and dialogue in the city and, in some cases, elements born with a purpose remain anachronistically or experience a re-adapted second life.

Reading, visiting, narrating, watching, interpreting, filming, traveling, and getting to know a city, are actions that this event proposes to understand and transmit a new way of communicating it.

Digital technology is certainly a fundamental and decisive tool for the realization of this project, because it erases distances and connects users within a common network of information and knowledge, especially in a delicate and complex period such as the one in which we are living and designing.

The objective of DVD – Digital Visions of Dynamic cities is to identify a communication model that takes into account all the various aspects of the urban territory by providing an innovative and technologically advanced method of dissemination and cultural transmission.
