With Chiara Canali, curator of the pioneering Arteractive exhibition. Art, interactivity and social networks, Turin 2011, and Annalisa Ferraro, curator of the Trame project, Rieti 2020, we will explore the stages of a creative path that goes from the digital picture to the use of the brand new HoloLens 2 technology.

Vincenzo Marsiglia (Belvedere Marittimo, 1972) is graduated in painting at the Brera Academy in Milan. He is a multimedia artist who has long identified his distinctive sign in the four-pointed star, a simple graphic symbol called Marsiglia Unit. The artist always uses this symbol through different techniques to experiment with his formal and meaningful possibilities in sculpture, painting, interactive and immersive installations created using technological and digital means. In his latest works, the need to find a convergence between natural and artificial, real and virtual emerges more and more. He is elaborating a critical reflection on the current world looking at the technological future with optimism. Recent exhibitions and personal projects include: Vincenzo Marsiglia.
