Visionary Stone | Stone sculpture in the digital age: advantages and disadvantages of its evolution

Speakers: Raffaello Galiotto and Valentina Fogher

Organized by: Raffaello Galiotto in collaboration with Veronafiere

The world of stone sculpture is facing a very significant evolution. A scenario is expected in which digital immateriality joins numerical machinery's precision and powerful strength to plow through the stone body in exploring new expressive languages. The exhibition is inspired by the works on display to take stock of the use of digital technology in stone sculpture and thus stimulate a debate on future developments in both positive and negative terms.

Round Table

Discovering Italy university research and the landscape of urban public spaces

Speakers: Giuseppe Fallacara | Domenico Potenza

Organized by: Giuseppe Fallacara and Domenico Potenza in collaboration with Veronafiere

The exhibition translates into a collection of significant images and experimental prototypes of the strength of stone to build a path to accompany university research: from the Italian historical tradition to the most advanced technologies of the digital revolution. We are convinced that this is the most exciting aspect of research for the near future; study to be nurtured and promoted (both in Italy and abroad) starting from the continuous collaboration between experimental explorations and new forms of production. The idea is to tell the variety and richness of a widespread lithic landscape, starting from a sort of "journey into the Italy of stones," capable of telling the territories of the quarries, the stratifications of urban landscapes, and research experiments scientific studies in the various Italian and foreign schools of architecture.
