I read the news today.
It seems that this year we cannot miss the Creativity Festival starting
this month in Florence: the “Virtual Renaissance” will be taken to the real world.
What does it mean?
Basically, what was created in Second Life, the virtual/digital environment based
on an electronic simulation ruled by its own inhabitants will be shown and translated into a “real language”.
(Digital Impressionism, Postkitsch, New Pop, l’Avatar Art, Iperformalism, Ultranaif next to Giotto’s!)
I kept reading…
During the exposition, the first “Second life Invasion” will take place in the city.
What does it mean?
We could see the avatars walking around the streets and interact with us.

I kept reading…
The Italian government decided that the educational system in Italy will become completely digital based.
I’m sure they have no idea what it means; but they’ve probably thought that it sounded cool.
