The project, conceived by Xiaomi together with the design and editorial creativity company Il Prologo – founded by Paola Caterina Manfredi and Giovanni Audiffredi – was a real training course and came to life thanks to the revolutionary Xiaomi HyperCharge ultra-fast charging technology of the new Xiaomi 11T Pro flagship, combined with the idea that culture is able to quickly recharge people’s minds and spirits, as a true natural energizer. Davide Lunardelli, Head of Marketing of Xiaomi Italia states:
Being an official partner of Artissima confirms the desire to support emerging art through innovative technologies and to trigger winning synergies that can enable creativity and stimulate even the youngest. When we conceived the project, we chose to undertake, together with a group of students and some of the great ambassadors of Italian excellence, a path of training experimentation, fielding the potential of technology and the strength of all-round art. We are really proud of the result and we are equally proud to be able to admire it in one of the most important art exhibitions in our country.
To offer a further contribution to the dissemination of culture, Xiaomi in partnership with Artissima has decided to also assign a special “Xiaomi HyperCharge Award” to the artist under 35, selected from those presented by the Artissima galleries, whose project best communicates the role that innovation and culture can give to contemporary society. Davide Lunardelli, Head of Marketing of Xiaomi Italia:
Thanks to the three masterclasses, the children received multiple creative stimuli which they treasured to create real digital works of art simply through the help of Xiaomi devices; a concrete demonstration of how the different forms of contemporary art can harmoniously come together thanks to an exclusive enabler, technology.
