Event on the new frontiers of publishing in dialogue with Smart Life Festival 2023 in its different expressive languages. The publishers will present their projects, with the opportunity to tell them in talks, showcases, labs, installations and musical performances in a program full of activities. Independent publishers, self-produced zines, informal collections, publishing houses, emerging designers, creative studios, artists and digital creators.

Given the complexity of interpretation of contemporary cultures and new digital meanings, Cave promotes dialogue, being there, the conscious confrontation on the latest publishing productions related to the transformations of the current world. A program full of insights, with the intervention of industry players, authors, curators, designers, students and training schools related to the world of publishing, art and technology. The exhibitors are protagonists together with the contents, present their catalogue, disseminate and amplify their editorial voice in an immersive and meaningful setting, highlighting with greater intensity the elements of interaction of publications with different creative disciplines. Hence the need to create an opportunity to measure these experiences, recognize and map them in a Festival like Smart Life, this year dedicated to the theme "Generations" and the ability of man, through the use of technologies, to generate new interpretations and solutions to contemporary problems and challenges.

Event Organized by Ventie30 Digital Design Studio in collaboration with Smart Life Festival and Open Laboratory of Modena within the space EX AEM of Modena.
