The Videocittà Festival begins today, July 5, at the Gazometro Complex in Rome Ostiense. The seventh edition of the event conceived by Francesco Rutelli and directed by Francesco Dobrovich is proposed as an immersion in the world of audiovisual declined in all its forms. Between digital art, innovation, music and shared spaces in harmony with industry meetings and workshops, the festival accompanies visitors through space and time.

For this year’s edition, the Gazometro will always be the central protagonist through Nebula, the gigantic installation by the Quiet Ensemble duo, with sounds composed by maestro Giorgio Moroder, that will envelop the entire Gazometro. And then again there will be many new features in this year’s program, such as the special celebration for the 150th anniversary of Guglielmo Marconi’s birth and the meeting led by Professor Vincenzo Schettini entitled “La fisica che ci piace” Through the collaboration between Anica and the Union of Digital Publishers and Creators, the entire event area will be a succession of installations, video art, immersive experiences, concerts and DJ sets, talks and workshops.

Also on hand for the Nebula lighting will be Camille Henrot, the French artist, Silver Lion winner at the 2013 Venice Biennale, whose artistic practice combines video, drawing and sculpture.
