“Reality is merely an illusion although a very persistent one”
Albert Einstein


Rome welcomes the second edition of Arte Scienza , the most important biennial festival dedicated to arts and scientific applications aimed to creativity and human expression in some of the most beautiful and suggestive sites of the city.

More than a hundred authors among whose it is possible to find artists, musicians,architects , philosophers and scientists coming from the most renowned Centres for research and international Institutes, will present the works and theories that will allow us to appreciate scientific innovations applied to music, visual arts, theatre, architecture, literature but as well to new approaches that concern the expressive use of light and new forms of artistic fruition: sound and visual installations that interact with the audience and integrate to the architectural, archaeological and natural spaces of a unique artistic city such as Rome.

The disciplinary spheres in question are diverse such as the varied articulation of events that will take place between May and June of 2006. A month full of appointments in prestigious locations such as the House of Architecture in the Acquario Romano museum (architectural exhibitions and virtual environments), the House of Cinema in Villa Borghese ( Cinefuturo ), the Casina del Cardinal Bessarione (artistic sound installations with a n lighting design put forward by Light designers from the ‘La Sapienza' University of Rome),the Goethe-Institut Rom (concerts, sound and visual installations) and other events scheduled in other sites.   

An international Symposium and a Master class will constitute the appointments dedicated to the deepening of the subject of the manifestation: the “space”, or even better, the “multiplicity of possible spaces”. From the “expressive” and “representative” space of the language to the “virtual” space generated artificially with informatic technologies, to the “imaginary” space of the interior life or the “territorial” space of the life in relations. 

Arte Scienza will enable living a unique experience that challenges acquired conceptions and the conventions on creation and invention, and will put in evidence our sensibility and our capacity to participate to the contemporary artistic experience.

The Festival, organized by the CRM – Centro Ricerche Musicali of Rome, is promoted and co-produced with the Goethe-Institut Rom, the House of Architecture, the Council of Architects of Rome and province , the ZKM – Centre for Media Arts in Karlsruhe (D), with the support of the Ministry of Cultural Heritage, the Municipality of Rome ,in collaboration with numerous Italian and foreign Institutes, the University ‘La Sapienza' of Rome and the Department of Music and New Technologies of the conservatory of L'Aquila.
