MUV – Music and Digital Art Festival
Yesterday in Venice, yet, today Wilfried is just making a small jump to Florence in 2009, where he is happy to present his selection from CologneOFF IV – Here We Are! It is good to see, that Florence is not just a famous place for the beauty of the Renaissance, but is hosting also initiatives for contemporary art developments. In this sense also another event structure, similiar to Wilfred’s without a static festival location, touring through historical places in Italy – Sguardi Sonori – Festival of media and time based art – which Wilfried is participating in in 2008 and 2009. This festival is trying to insert a contemporary spirit in ancient palazzi and former industrial sites, like MUV in Florence is doing – a combination of different classical and digital art formats. It is only a pity that is hardly possible to attend such local events visiting so many sites on the Italian countryside!
