EICS second edition takes place in Florence, a city with a key role in the development of human culture.
Florence gave birth to Renaissance Humanism and impulse to a new way of perceiving the world; this cultural rebirth spread from Italy to the whole Europe in the XV century.
Mankind evolves thanks to great cultural changes: the central role of man is restored, new discoveries are shared, circles and academies are established.
But knowledge and desire to learn and to share ideas are also kind of features of both humanism and EICS.
EICS is the modern circle where immersive technologies are studied, new discoveries are shared and where people and companies get a central role in relation to mere technological tools.
Venice first, then Florence: EICS journey follows a path among cities with a historical inclination to innovation and exchanges and with a kind but productive approach to the multiculturalism.
To see the sun sink down, drowned on his pink and purple and golden floods, and overwhelm Florence with tides of color that make all the sharp lines dim and faint and turn the solid city to a city of dreams, is a sight to stir the coldest nature.
In Florence, classical buildings sit against medieval buildings. It's that contrast we like.
And the voices in the waves are always whispering to Florence, in their ceaseless murmuring, of love - of love, eternal and illimitable, not bounded by the confines of this world, or by the end of time, but ranging still, beyond the sea, beyond the sky, to the invisible country far away!
In Paris, you learn wit, in London you learn to crush your social rivals, and in Florence you learn poise.
