Eni together with Videocittà

Again this year, Eni was Main Partner of Videocittà 2023, an international event whose every edition explores and promotes the various creative forms of audiovisual communication, based on the industry’s advanced digital technologies and suggesting increasingly innovative, future-oriented imageries.

Eni and Videocittà continued their journey together on the subject of energy transition as a process of change, with a fresh narrative that focused on the Earth.

This year the festival took place at Eni’s Gazometro Ostiense, a symbol of urban industrial archaeology and today an innovation and sustainability hub.  On this occasion it was reinterpreted and hosted “Mater Terrae”, a site-specific installation by Sila Sveta, with original music by Mace, produced by Eni and curated by Videocittà. The installation transported the audience into a new immersive experience.

 The Mater Terrae installation

Mater Terrae was a grand tribute to the Earth and to all the planet's mother elements, starting from the glowing magma at its core, through water, the primary element and vital resource that dominates much of it, to the air and the living things that inhabit it.

It was an immersive installation, whose aim was to captivate the audience with its 3000 square metres of projection, in a close dialogue with the original music by Mace, an Italian musician and producer, author of great musical successes in recent years.  

The video content, made up of a mix of real and digital images, took the audience on a virtual journey from the centre of the Earth to the immensity of the Universe, with a space-enhancing sound aimed at amplifying the emotions offered by the multisensory journey.

A look back at previous editions of Videocittà

The Videocittà festival is an open, innovative platform that attracts audiovisual excellence and addresses key contemporary issues. The exhibition has hosted hundreds of events, AV performances, multimedia installations, videomapping (for example the Paradoxa work on Palazzo Eni in Eur) and video art, shows, conferences and screenings, attended by national and international guests such as Francesca Michielin, AES+F, Sevdaliza, and many others.

Videocittà reaches the Gazometro after being hosted in different parts of Rome: charming squares in the old city, government buildings, galleries and museums such as the Maxxi Museum, venues repurposed for culture and entertainment such as the former barracks in Via Guido Reni and the former customs house in San Lorenzo. In edition after edition, the common thread of the exhibition remains its ability to guide the audience on a journey of transformation and innovation.
