What is Digital Culture? What is Technological Art? What of the poetics involved in artistic manifestations on the internet, or in new media such as video, digital photography, CD-ROM, or electro-acoustic music? As well as responding to these issues, the Sergio Motta Cultural Award is a means of discovering and encouraging new talents in those fields.The Award also honors the memory of former-minister Sergio Motta, who was a constant supporter of cultural activity and keenly interested in the new technologies of the future.
