ROMAP – Roma Interactive Light Festival, now at its second edition, concerns the new frontiers of digital art and its astonishing transformations to the urban space. ROMAP will invade the historical center of the capital with light installations and architectural projections. Light, sounds, 2D and 3D motion images and technology will treat both Romans and visitors with a journey between the past and the future in Rome’s great beauty.
Romap was born in 2015, with a program that saw the partecipation of more than 50.000 people in 4 days. The Festival established itself in Rome’s artistic and cultural scene with two great installations: the monumental digital-art piece Globoscope was set at Circo Massimo by the French ensemble ‘Coin‘, while ‘Apparati Effimeri‘ conceived Italy’s first public 3D videomapping in Piazza Navona, with over 20,000 pairs of 3D glasses handed out to visitors.
For RO-Map’s second edition, on 9-11 September 2016, some of the most established digital-artists will transform four historical locations in the very heart of the Capital into a surreal and interactive walk through history and art.
Romap has been conceived by artistic director Michele Cinque, with the creative direction of Valerio Ciampicacigli: the Festival is produced by Lazy Film, an ensemble with great experience in artistic productions. Romap has been also possible thanks to the support of international partners and e sponsors, such as the Brazilian Embassythe Spanish Embassy, the Turkish Embassy (Ufficio Cultura e Informazioni), Trollbeads, PressUP, Turkish Airlines, Sky Arte, ATAC Roma, Wired, Artribune, Car2go, ZERO, Oniride, We meet Brands, Nois3, Vivi Bistrot, Spring Attitude, SUEDE, Paula Studio.
