How can the Internet and social media add value to Italy’s heritage? Find it out, or actually, do it yourself from April 20 to the 28th.
Invasioni Digitali is a nationwide initiative that encourages people who like to communicate online to submit their pictures, videos and comments on a selected list of Italian sites via the main social networks: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest and Foursquare.
Our immense and badly kept artistic/archaeological heritage needs new ways and platforms to be presented and this is a good project to start with.
Digital invasions will also occur in Rome, of course. And we would like to help you find your favorite digital invasions so that you can do justice to the beauty of the Eternal City!
At the moment there are 10 events scheduled in the Eternal City but many more will be added in the next few hours. You can find them using the map and zooming on Rome.
The city government will charge you the reduced price if you register for each event via Eventbrite. No videos, though, no flash, and pictures only where they’re allowed.
Ara Pacis. April 24 at 5:30pm. We are sure Massimiliano Cammuso will really make you enjoy this invasion with all his passion for digital media! He will also use a new twitter service, Visible Cloud Live, that will help you to know what’s the best stuff coming out of your twitter accounts. Register yourself here if you want a discounted admission.
Parco degli Acquedotti. April 21 at 10:30am. Free of charge. Ideal on a sunny Sunday since it’s an outdoor invasion. You’ll have to show how good were Romans at building aqueducts and distributing drinkable water and what they mean nowadays.
Centrale Montemartini. April 26 from 4pm to 6:30pm. Industrial archaeology and ancient Roman relics, how will you integrate the two in your digital narrative? That’s the real challenge…..
Museo di Roma in Trastevere. April 28 from 4pm to 7pm. The final event of this year’s Invasioni Digitali in Rome will be in one of the places that best embodies the authentic Roman spirit and the city’s folklore with its permanent collection. Let’s see if you can digitally grasp Rome’s identity!
