Mediartech Special The cultural events and the prizewinning works

Mediartech was not just an exhibition of technological novelties and curiosities created in order to somehow amaze the visitor. The cultural part of the exhibition was not only interesting but above all original and included a series of seminars on communications in general. The show was packed with cultural events which also included the intervention of well known personalities like Derrick de Kerkhove, student of McLuhan in Canada, teacher of the latest methods in communication and Mark Pesce, one of the creators of the Virtual Reality Modelling Language.
