The first Info-day of SMATH, organized by our project partner Friuli Venezia Giulia Region, was held in Pordenone on March 4, 2019.
The event, included in the opening ceremony of the Pordenone Design Week, involved many artists, companies, students and people belonging to the cultural and creative industries’ (CCI) sectors, bringing the audience closer to the CCI world.
On this occasion, the Director Antonella Manca presented SMATH project, firstly, providing an overview of the CCIs in the European and regional context, and, secondly, focusing on the objectives, activities and project outputs.
Then, the Regional Minister for Culture and Sports Tiziana Gibelli enhanced the Regional strategy in the CCI field, describing how CCIs in Friuli Venezia Giulia are able to create wealth equal to 1.8 billion euros. “This value “ – she said – “shows how important this sector is in terms of regional GDP and the hard work that we must continue to do to keep this weight high in our territory”.
During the event, there was also an important lectio magistralis held by Carlo Castiglioni about the relevance of the dialogue between design, designer and companies.
SMATH Info-day was a great opportunity to present SMATH project and to disseminate it’s content.
