RosaDigitale is an Italian community born as a movement against the gender gap in technology and computer science. Throughout Italy, we plan several events called "rose petals", through which we involve girls and women in everything related to technology. In collaboration with schools, local institutions and public administrations, we organize training courses, workshop, conferences and seminars about information technologies themes like coding, robotics, virtual reality, web design, etc. Connecting people and joining forces to fight for gender equality is our purpose.
MUBIL project, a collaboration between PERCRO Perceptual Robotics Laboratory (Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna - Pisa) and the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, aims to use new technologies as a means of cultural dissemination, making available in a virtual and interactive way the old volumes of the Norwegian university library Gunnerus.
Marina's role within the project was to create a special kind of virtual environment called "Information Landscape", dedicated to the life of the Norwegian explorer Hans Hansen Lilienskiold.

"The Ideal School" is a project born from the collaboration between PERCRO Perceptual Robotics Laboratory (Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna - Pisa) and "Galileo Galilei" Middle School of Cecina (Livorno), in order to give voice to the imagination of children, allowing them to express thoughts and ideas about the school of the future, seen both as architectural structure as well as a meeting, growth and socialization place. Marina managed all the students training, helping them rebuild their real classroom and design the school of their dreams through the use of 3D modeling tools.
For the exhibition "Dream and Reality" of the Russian artist Viktor Popkov, held at the University of Venice "Ca' Foscari" in 2014, Marina and the Percro Lab team developed the interactive application "Popkov colors".
The installation allows the visitor to interact with the paintings through touch mode, giving a total perceptive and visual involvement.
