Museo Marino Marini Firenze | The Museo Marino Marini is an intriguing place where many periods in the history of Italian art are represented. A building with early Christian origins, the ex-church of San Pancrazio preserves the Rucellai Chapel with the temple realized by Leon Battista Alberti during the Renaissance. A structure with an industrial architecture from the time, during the nineteenth century, when it was transformed into a tobacco factory; the building was finally restored in 1986 by Lorenzo Papi and Bruno Sacchi adapting it to hosting the rich collection of works by Marino Marini, one of the most important Italian artists of the twentieth century.
Tuomuseo | Tuomuseo, winner of the cultural innovation competition held by Fondazione Cariplo, is an international collective of creative people, developers and game designers trained to experiment new ways of cultural production and fruition.
Fabio Viola | He is the author of the book “Gamification – Videogames in Daily Life” and “The Art of Engagement” (Hoepli 2017), has coordinated the Master in Gamification and Engagement Design for IED Milan and collaborates with numerous universities.
