“Σύστημα” (System) is a series of encounters in which poetry, new technologies and artistic creativity dialogue to dissect reality and provide new interpretative keys. A series of debates in which contemporary art becomes the hinge of the close relationship between humanism, engineering and philosophy to imagine a future in which the beauty of change will be entrusted solely to the measure of the man.

In collaboration with Fondazione Leonardo-Civiltà delle Macchine and Gruppo CDP – Cassa Depositi e Prestiti.
