Interview with Prof. Maurizio Seracini - The Da Vinci Detective

"If science can become instrumental in rediscovering the true values of our cultural heritage, and using widespread modern technologies attract the interest and curiosity of new generations, then I can see a new renaissance for the role of art in the future. Hopefully, in the decades to come people will still feel linked to their past if it will be identified as fundamental for the creation of their identity".

The Future of Museums: Interview with Joël Kremer

"I think we will change the way people experience art in more than one way. Giving people access to world class art, which previously had no statistical chance of experiencing it, for instance in countries/continents such as China India and Africa. Educating people in a much more personal and interactive way during their museum visit".

The Full Story Behind Leonardo’s Last Supper

'It was just a theory, but I thought: what if the king asked for the next best thing: a faithful copy made by Leonardo on canvas. The latter was a new medium in those days. I started to go through the archives in France and Florence and in the latter found a letter where the king of France asks the Signoria to send Leonardo to work for him for a while. So, da Vinci goes to Milan a second time as the painter of the king, why? Because he’s making a copy of the Last Supper.'

The Aestheticized Interview with Monica de Miranda (Portugal/Angola)

"I believe that the artist can create and talk about art only from his/her subjective position.To have a political responsibility that extends beyond the artistic territory is too much of a burden which could jeopardize the artist's creativity and freedom. In such a case, the art serves a function, becoming a manifesto. Art should not fulfill a function, it should be free. "
