BAM! Strategie Culturali and the Embassy and Consulate General of the Netherlands in Italy are carrying out a research project in the field of digital innovation and digitalization of cultural heritage and activities. The project aims to identify areas of comparison and collaboration between Italy and the Netherlands on the subject.

BAM! is organizing and moderating two online panel discussions – open to an audience of listeners – that will follow two different perspectives on digital innovation in the cultural sector. The guests will be some operators, directors, professionals from Italian and Dutch cultural institutions and organizations who will present their perspectives and experiences.
