ICS Magzine: from Lee's Europe to the Kennedys myth

Storytelling and heritage at the core of the new ICS Magzine issue in English. On the cover, Spike Lee reflects on the “European nation”. Inside, Kathleen Kennedy’s voice and a trip through culture and new technologies, from the reading rooms of the Bibliotheca Alexandrina to Google’s virtual galleries

From Europe to Africa all the way to America, a mosaic of influential voices enriches the new ICS Magzine, focused on the communication of cultural heritage. The new issue in the English version takes up some of the speeches made during the last summit ICS Europe: in the opening, the director Spike Lee, pioneer of movie storytelling on social integration, who reflects on the multiculturalism of the European continent and on how to tell its “soul”.

Coming from the United States is also the contribution by Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, niece of the former USA President, who highlights how topical is the cultural and moral legacy of a family that made history. The themes of heritage and identity are also addressed by Stephen Clark, European Parliament’s director for communication with citizens, who explains the institutional projects dedicated to this theme, from the House of European History to the Heritage Days.

Moreover, this issue also contains long insights on the projects enhancing the value of culture through new technologies: from Amit Sood to Simona Panseri from the Google Cultural Institute, from Danco Singer and his Encyclomedia to Stefano Jacoviello with his PanSpeech platform to enhance the value of heritage through crowdsourcing and Yasser G. Aref from the Bibliotheca Alexandrina, head of the chapter of the IAM project (International Augmented Med) for the 3D reconstruction of ancient Alexandria of Egypt.

And also, an abstract from the new book by Alfonso Mattera Ricigliano and a semiotic point of view on heritage by the expert of heritage communication Andrea Tramontana.
