Brunelleschi’s renowned loggia in piazza Santissima Annunziata will host works by three Italian video artists selected out of 72 artists from all over Italy who participated in a digital arts competition for talents under 35. Among the young artists selected are Davide Finazzi, Emanuele Plicato and Edoardo Berti who will be joined by Alessio Bianciardi, a Florentine video artist and founder of the Full Frames studio.
The video mapping show will take place at 9pm on December 27, and will be live streamed on The Florentine‘s Facebook page as well as the Bright Festival’s page and other media partners. Titled ‘Rinascimento Digitale’, or ‘Digital Renaissance’, the concept was formed by Bright Festival, organized by Claudio Caciolli, Teresa Balestrieri, Gianpaolo Dei and Luciano Dagostini. The exclusive show broadcasts a much needed message of hope and rebirth, taking place as part of the first edition of ‘Inverno Fiorentino’, supported by the Municipality of Florence and Mus.e.
The show was conceived specifically with the web in mind, allowing an international audience to enjoy the 15 minute long show that will be streamed live. The architectural surface will be radically altered using digital technologies and video projections, creating a remarkable display.
