Dive into all things digital and new...in a very old venue! Dubbed a “luna park of innovation” by its organizers, WIRED Next Fest, put on by the technology publication of the same name, returns to Palazzo Vecchio for its second Florentine edition. Hundreds of speakers from a range of industries will share ideas on emerging trends and cross-disciplinary collaboration. International names in the lineup include Marietje Schaake, described by The Wall Street Journal as “Europe’s most connected politician”; Gijs Corstens, managing director of a coding school for refugees called Hack Your Future; and Italian pop star Levante (now a published novelist with Se Non Ti Vedo Non Esisti, Rizzoli Libri). All events are free, but require registration; see the website for details.
