the first European festival on creativity

2014 Programme

Event #13

Matteo Lancini


The digital revolution has promoted “vivervirtuale” (living virtually): creative spaces, expressive and relational ambients within which adolescents and young adults experiment with new opportunities for the realization of the self and the social. Matteo Lancini proposes a general definition of the psychological reasons for the “bodiless” relations and games between adolescents, and presents the testimonies of protagonists of the modern digital revolution. The features of this change are the rapid and pervasive dissemination with which the content, idea or creative product appears on the Web. In particular, Lancini analyzes the novelties introduced by the virtual world on the musical scene, in that of videogames and social networks. Participants in the workshop include Emilio Cozzi, Massimo Guarini, Nitro, Flavio Parenti.
