The day will be an original dialogue of great interest among one of the most trendy collective of the language of contemporary video art, Nastivicious – which contains graphics, collage, urban music, all between individual conscience and social denunciation – and the great master of Italian art video, Fabrizio Plessi, pioneer of the fluid and installative language of Italian video art.
