<Opening hours>

Exhibition -  from Thursday 25th May to Sunday 28th  May from 12.00 to 

Performances - from Thursday 25th May to Saturday 28th May from 20.00 to 


In a historical moment in which festival and reviews tied to the 
artistic application of new media and the so called new technologies 
proliferate, Mixed Media is an event of electronic culture which does 
not want to give an exhaustive panorama of the practices and disciplines 
which animate this world in continuous evolution, but which essentially 
presents itself as a moment of growth of dialogue and of confrontation 
of the new media.

The four days of the event, through exhibitions, meetings, seminars, 
concerts and visual and sound environments, wants to try and give useful 
stimuli to establish courses and connections between the parts, helping 
to locate the way in which 'digital' is changing the cultural structures 
and the perceptive procedures of the modern society.

free and flexible as possible for his work, for architecture, interior 
design, theoretical projects and installations, establishing 
relationships between experimentation and adherence to reality. His 
approach, which is artistic and multidisciplinary , and with particular 
attention to stimuli and digital technology , is in any case tied to 
architectural methods and conditions. Many of his works and projects 
have won prizes at competitions, exhibited and published in Italy and 
abroad and chosen for the Biennale di Venezia. A personal exhibition of 
his works, "Spaced Out, Gianluca Milesi, architectural exercises" was 
held at the Sesv, University of Florence , in 2003. He ads to the

interest and a guide book to contemporary architecture of New York . His 
work is found on www.science-architecture.com.

new technologies and new media, multimedial communication, digital 
marketing, and along with this activity is also content manager and 
consultant of design and communication through new medias. He has been 
actively and professionally tied to the entire network of professionals, 
artists, consultants and journalists who are the heart of the electronic 
contro-culture in Italy for many years, which is in gradual expansion. 
In January 2005 he decides to give life to DIGICULT (www.digicult.it), a 
new cultural project on electronic art, which has the ambitious aim to 
build the first real Italian community of digital art and culture, a 
centre of attraction for all those who love electronic arts and 
technologies. A territory contaminated by art and worlds which 
apparently seem different, but are brought together by the same creative 
digital matrix. Editor and responsible for the monthly magazine DIGIMAG 
(www.digicult.it/digimag), and of podcast DIGIPOD 
(www.digicult.it/podcast), Marco Mancuso works as consultant for the 
press office and often as curator and promoter of events tied to culture 
and electronic arts.
