The Media Art Festival is an initiative conceived by the Fondazione Mondo Digitale and developed in collaboration with MAXXI – 21st Century Arts Museum, Epson, United States Embassy in Italy, Accademia di Belle Arti di Roma, Palazzo delle Esposizioni, and in connection with the Europa Creativa and Erasmus+ Programmes. Our cultural partner is RUFA – Rome University of Fine Arts and our media partner is Inside Art.
The Media Art Festival is based on an original format, which includes a number of events (exhibition, lectures, hackathon, labs, etc.) and brings together art and technology, contaminating a range of different audiences. It’s a successful formula that joins an exhibition with international artists with new and innovative initiatives that connect the festival with local communities.
