On Tuesday, July 11, at 12.30 p.m., at the Mandela Room of the Town Hall of Matera city, an important collaboration agreement will be signed between the Youth Committee of the National Commission for UNESCO and Digital Lighthouse. The agreement provides for a partnership aimed at promoting and enhancing the national cultural, historical, artistic and environmental heritage, beginning with the development by Digital Lighthouse of a videogame set in the city of Matera, the European Capital of Culture 2019. The videogame, intended for commercialization and mass distribution, will be made using patented methodologies for scenarios and settings reconstruction and will allow gamers to enjoy an original and engaging gaming experience through the use of Virtual Reality. An innovative way, from the perspective of New Entertainment, to discover the beauty of the old town and the so-called "Sassi di Matera", that have been declared World Heritage Site in 1993 by UNESCO. The support of Digital Lighthouse for the activities and projects of UNESCO Youth Committee will be achieved through the realization of a promotional video of the first "UNESCO Italian Youth Forum" scheduled in the city of the "Sassi" in March 2018. The partnership confirms the willingness of the parties to pursue a synergy aimed at enhancing and promoting the cultural heritage of the national territory, and in particular of a defined number of Italian UNESCO sites, in line with the UNESCO Youth Committee's mission and with the technological and informative strong vocation which characterizes Digital Lighthouse multimedia solutions for the Cultural Heritage sector. The signature of the agreement will take place on the day of presentation of the Forum, in the presence of the President of the UNESCO Youth Committee Paolo Petrocelli, the Directos of the Fondazione Matera-Basilicata 2019 Paolo Verri, the CEO of Digital Lighthouse Davide Colangelo, the representatives of the Regions of Basilicata, Apulia and Campania and of the Municipality of Matera.
