Meet the Media Guru, directed by Maria Grazia Mattei was established in 2005 as a platform of knowledge exchange and meeting that invites in Italy the excellences of international digital culture. In 2018 it transitioned to MEET, the first Italian Digital Culture Center thanks to the partnership with Fondazione Cariplo.
Thanks to its strong social aptitude and its ability to address and interact with all population groups, MEET shows and makes available languages, creative ideas and innovative projects to reduce the digital cultural divide and guarantee an increasingly more active participation with an approach centred on meeting and inclusion. MEET proposes a massive plan of on life – on line and on site initiatives like events, exhibits, training experiences and creative services that bring man back at the forefront of technological change.
Other key factors are exchange, discussion and building of new projects together with several international partners, first of all the George Brown College in Toronto, namely the Institute Without Boundaries specialised in multi-disciplinary and shared planning.
MEET opened in a virtual form on line and then will establish a physical office in the centre of Milan, a city with which it wants to immediately clarify the strong bond, essential for the city’s strategic role in Italy’s innovation process.
