The groups then got out the conference room and went around in Pisa centre, to collect materials (pictures, video, ..) with their smartphones around the city. The collected contents was then elaborated by each group and presented to the others. The event closed with a conclusion speech on audience engagement by Jasper Visser (dowload PDF, 11 Mb and please see the video HERE).
