Senior Telecom ALATEL Venice in collaboration with the Cultural Association Liciniana, invites you to the conference "CHARACTERS OF TIZIANO AND PICASSO SEEN BY A TODAY PORTRAIT PAINTER.
Maestro Giovanni Cavazzon is the promoter of this conference which provides the audience with an interpretation of the portraits from a particular point of view, that of a portraitist.
The purpose of his words is to remove misunderstandings about the meaning of the portrait, often reduced to a mere finding of physiognomy. Through the "reading" of some of the portraits of two great performers, he starts towards understanding of psychological and aesthetic investigation of the works, up to put in direct relation works only apparently different as self-portraits by Titian (1565) and Picasso (1965 ), or portraits of Ranuccio Farnese (1541) and Maja (1938).
"A portrait, like any good biography, tells us about the person, their availability to the world, its aspirations and also his social status, the family environment, the role that society has assigned to. The psychological portraits (those that go beyond the physiognomic aspect) should be read carefully: a look, a bitter twist, a thoughtfulness disarming, defiant, hairstyle, an accessory, they tell us much, and most of the character of the person. "(from:" Re / traits "by Giorgio Belledi, theater director). Cavazzon Giovanni is a master of this art, as evidenced by his extensive work as a portraitist, of which there was also an exhibition at Castello Sforzesco in Milan (2007).

New frontiers of mobile communication @ Telecom Future Centre
We are on the threshold of a new technological shift that will revolutionize mobile communication and the world of applications. Development of Ultra Mobile Broadband (UBB), which occurs due to deployment in the field of LTE, will give new impetus to the world of applications and services that each person can have in your pocket, on your smartphone or tablet.
Right this issue we talk about on Wednesday, May 8 at Telecom Future Centre in San Salvador, thanks to a nice synergy created together with the Ca 'Foscari Digital Week with the aim of promoting and disseminating innovations in the digital field.
Thanks to the Mobile UBB many of the constraints that currently limit the applications will disappear: the capacity of communication channel may reach hundreds of Mbits per second, in a symmetrical manner in the two directions, while the delays introduced by the digital transmission will drop below the threshold of human perception.
Applications that will benefit from these improvements will be many and varied: from the consumption of multimedia content to chat in online gaming to personal media libraries from mobile commerce applications to personal storage "in the cloud".
The workshop "Mobile UBB and applications" in the program at the Future Centre is an opportunity to highlight the expectations that different application domains have on the new mobile platforms, and to explain in a simple and direct way the main features of the new system, both in terms of technology and in terms of performance.

Seniores Telecom ALATEL Venice invites you to presentation of "Mysteries of Venice" by Alberto Toso Fei
Presentation of "Mysteries of Venice", the new interactive book by Alberto Toso Fei: a seven-night journey to discover a different Venice - secret and mysterious signs polished by time, but recognizable and waiting to be discovered.
Seven itineraries between history and myth, where legends and curiosities, unusual facts and amusing anecdotes materialize in the places they took life. Includes maps, photographs, illustrations and ten QR codes allowing stories to be told directly by the author!
More info www.albertotosofei.it
Alberto Toso Fei, 42 years old, descends from an ancient family of glassmasters in Murano, and is an expert on the history and the mysteries of Venice. He is a journalist, and has written a series of books that constitute an anthology of mystery in Venice and the lagoon. It all started over twenty years ago, when Alberto Toso Fei decided that in some way, he had to "record" the tales of our "grandparents" which might otherwise be lost forever. This return to the oral tradition, with its infinite legends and stories of witches and ghosts, stories that used to be told around the hearth, was the basis for a lot of his books. Conversely he also relies on advanced technology: for the book "The Secrets of the Grand Canal", Toso Fei uses the "Canalview" system (www.canalview.it) to create a virtual three-dimensional journey that simulates navigation down the Grand Canal, as he recounts the stories and the legends surrounding the "most beautiful boulevard in the world". These multi-media presentations were held with resounding success in Venice at the Telecom Italia Future Centre, in two evening events in the splendid atmosphere of the Cloister of San Salvador some years ago.
from March 17th to March 31st
