Opera Congress Center

An amazing location

Florence, with its well known and significant cultural and artistic heritage, is the perfect example of a place which is amazingly evocative, with the Cupola del Brunelleschi, the new Museo dell’Opera del Duomo, the works of the great artists who transformed Florence in an “art – yard”. The heart of the city, the heart of that “art – yard”, will be the location of Museum: Digital Transformation.

The newest and biggest museum in Florence

Museum: Digital Transformation is a conference by Florence Museo dell’Opera del Duomo. Its mission is to start a conversation about the digitalization of cultural and artistic heritage for its “real” and “virtual” fruition. A mission which is at the core of the 2015 massive overhaul of Museo dell’Opera del Duomo, the biggest museum in Florence, completely redesigned to meet the needs of the contemporary visitor.

MDT’s venue – Centro Arte e Cultura, 7 Piazza San Giovanni, 50123 Firenze, Florence, Italy is literally a stone’s throw from the Museo dell’Opera del Duomo and Santa Maria del Fiore’s monuments.
