Led by Maria Grazia Mattei, the renowned digital culture expert, this new cultural space ranks as a vector of Italian expertise abroad, bringing forward highly creative ideas and generating cutting-edge projects.
In October, MEET will open its headquarters in the center of Milan: 1500sqm on three floors designed as a media and phygital space (physical and digital) by Carlo Ratti, architect-engineer who heads the MIT Senseable City Lab. MEET is at the forefront of technological change as well as digital art and design, with an approach focused on encounters, accessibility and inclusion.
Throughout her career, Maria Grazia Mattei has promoted numerous initiatives dedicated to the awareness and diffusion of digital culture in collaboration with international organizations including Venice Biennale (Italy), Siggraph (USA) and Imagina (France).
MEET Digital Culture Center was born out of Meet the Media Guru with the decisive support of Fondazione Cariplo, one of the world’s leading philanthropic organizations dedicated to helping organizations to better serve their communities and provide ideas for the future.
