LIEU.CITY is also a social network: each user has his own profile, he can decide which information to make public, he can follow other users, including organizers and comment or like the works.
Andrea Concas' vision of achieving the first prize in Digital Art is certainly possible thanks to science but when you are the first to experience that science fiction is transformed into reality, sometimes literally taking it by the shoulders.
It was an abnormal work of engineers, architects, computer scientists and curators, but the result was worth it.
Thanks to everyone, not for the effort, but for the "I believe" that we would have made it.
