Stories of creativity and their authors
Regione Lazio asked 10 experts to name 10 creative professionals from 10 different creative sectors. 10 writers met and interviewed them to tell their stories. The result:100 fast and exciting portraits, 100 success stories that speak of genuine and irreverent, yet outspoken and blatantly brilliant creativity. To name a few, there is the story of the artist who has decided to put a face to the names of the streets of Rome through poster art or the technology innovator that develops an app to save users from queues; the designer who invents bags with blackboard cover to take notes or the brave creative who brings the new languages of contemporary art in small towns on the mountains. There is the story of the innovator who designs the wi-fi photovoltaic energy bench or the story of the movie makers who made a short film to tell the darkest forgotten pages of history of the region.
