On October 10-13, the ninth edition of the Internet Festival returns to Pisa. International speakers, interactive exhibitions and a jam-packed schedule of events are sure to spark debate about the evolving relationship between the internet and society. The tagline of this year’s festival is #regoledelgioco  (#therulesofthegame), designed to examine as well as celebrate the idea of internet freedom, coinciding with the 50th anniversary of the first cycle of computer science studies in Italy, which took place in Pisa.

With 13 different locations and 13 different themes, visitors to the festival can expect to be fully immersed in an array of innovative activities reflecting on the impact of the internet on modern life, considering digital democracy and the future of information and research. Highlights of the packed-programme include Legambiente’s bubble which recreates the effect of Global Warming, The Sound of Crowd, a multimedia and digital installation that transforms the faces of people into visual art and sound, and the Digital Aperitif, wine-listening sessions which bring one of Italy’s favourite exports into the digital world.

 

 

Events take place across various locations in Pisa

 

 

Of particular note this year, the exhibition by the Italian street artist NO CURVES will take over the Citadel Galileiana, transforming it into an artist’s residence through his original and pioneering method known as ‘Tape Art’ where adhesive tape becomes an instrument of artistic expression. Musical performances and family-friendly events complete the programme and ensure a festival that will prompt discussion, reflection, and discover of new, fun ways to embrace technology's inevitable part in our lives.
