MILAN – We often make the mistake of underestimating the contribution of women to the world of video games.
And – let’s face it – it’s not the fault of individuals, at least not always.
Every time we find “women” and “video games” in the same sentence we find ourselves telling how hard it is to be a human being belonging to the fairer sex in this sector. Or how much (fortunately) female characters have evolved throughout history, going from the classic damsels to be saved to the absolute protagonists of industry milestones.
All of this is correct.
It is still vital today to address these issues in the hope of achieving gender equality in a formerly male-dominated environment.
However, we must not forget one important thing: women, even in the past, have given a strong boost to the world of video games.
To tell it, Intel has decided to bring an exhibition to the Fuorisalone: Design in Videogames.
Design in Videogames to learn and have fun
The exhibition, which you will find at Spazio Filippetti (viale Angelo Filippetti, 41, Milan) from 17 to 23 Aprilopens with a huge area that tells the story and the contribution of 6 game designers who have left their mark, from Jina Ishiwatari con Sonic The Hedgehog a Amy Hennig with Uncharted. An interesting journey that also includes clips from 6 different video games, contained within Samsung’s The Frame TVs that practically transform them into digital paintings.
