IVIPRO DAYS. Video games. Heritage. Tourism.

IVIPRO DAYS is our annual event dedicated to exploring the role and potential of video games as a resource for narrating the territory and heritage. On 23rd November 2018, the first “Video games, territory and heritage” seminar took place in Bologna. Again, on 14th and 15th September 2019, IVIPRO DAYS hosted in-depth informative meetings, featuring Italian and international guests. At the charming Castello Estense of Ferrara, 23 experts and scholars, developers and game designers, as well as cultural institutions that had been working with video games, shared case studies and concrete experiences with the audience. Due to the Covid-19 emergency, IVIPRO DAYS 2020 and 2021 moved online. The 2022 edition will be back in-person on November 1-2.

IVIPRO DAYS’ lectures and panels – held in Italian and English – are aimed at museums, students, local authorities, cultural institutions, associations and developers interested in exploring the opportunities connected to the use of video games as cultural and promotional tools. Admission to IVIPRO DAYS is always free.
