For three days, the city of Reggio Emilia was transformed into a futuristic workshop based on the knowledge and experience of digital transformations in contemporary society. The city hosted the second edition of After Futuri Digitali, the first festival dedicated to broadband and its use in cities and communities. Elastica acted as a consultant for the organisation and the production of several events in the programme, as well as the press office and the presence of several speakers.
More than 80 events provided inspiration around the city, with workshops, conferences, shows and a large exhibition area with cutting-edge demonstrations, enabling visitors to experience digital applications, including robotics and artificial intelligence.
There were loads of guests including Salvatore Aranzulla, one of the most famous computer science popularisers and bloggers on the internet; the presenter and journalist Federico Taddia; the university lecturer, writer and journalist Stefano Bartezzaghi; the philosopher, sociologist, psychoanalyst and academic Umberto Galimberti and the Sky presenter Alessio Viola, amongst others.
The event offered visitors the chance to discover the latest developments in artificial intelligence, robotics and data science applied to particular areas and focusing on people, communities and the technology available to them, exploring the different ways that digital technology can improve people’s quality of life, in their role as citizens..
