The seminar aims to investigate the intersection between technology, arts, humanities and cultural heritage and to critically evaluate how technology and digital media can be effectively used to support the museum practices. It is expected to contribute to the development of a platform for exchange of museum best practices, enhancing qualitative analysis and in-depth examination.

Through the seminar, efficient models and scenarios of museum practice, case studies, innovative approaches, experimental and creative experiences will be introduced, able to open new perspectives and to reinforce awareness and critical thinking in the framework of the current practices.
