The EyesWeb Week will be held at the site of InfoMus Lab at Casa
Paganini. Casa Paganini is located in the ancient complex of the ex-monastery of
Santa Maria delle Grazie, in the heart of the historical centre of Genova. The
230-seats auditorium is a fascinating space of the 14th century, covered by a
vault completely decorated with frescos of the 16th century by Bernardo Castello
e Giovanni Carlone. Casa Paganini also includes several museum rooms and the new
site of DIST-InfoMus Lab with motion tracking and multimedia setups. Since 2005
DIST-InfoMus Lab is present at Casa Paganini with an international project on
music, science, and technology including scientific seminars, schools,
conferences, and preparation of multimedia technologies and interfaces for
artistic productions and museum exhibits.
