About Jacopo Tomassini's work
Jacopo Tomassini's work is fundamentally characteristic of digital art Digital art can be understood as twofold - digital technology can be the medium used to produce artworks, but it can also be the end in itself. In both instances, digital art implies that computer processing is involved in the making, or presentation, of the artwork. Sometimes referred to as “new-media art”, digital art fundamentally challenges the boundaries between technology and art and grants the artists a new kind of freedom, never experienced before. Digital art can also involve installations, which offers the viewer an interactive experience. First introduced in the 1980s, with artists such as Harold Cohen and Andy Warhol as pioneers of the genre, digital art will keep unfolding, as technology endlessly develops and becomes more sophisticated.

Historical Context of Italy
The classical period of the Romans has exerted a consequential influence on the cultural and intellectual development of Italy, contributing to the uniqueness of the country and its sumptuous artistic heritage. Italy is also the country that embodies the Renaissance, “Riniscita” in its original language, which signifies “rebirth”. From the early 1400s, the Renaissance has been a fervent period of cultural and political flourishing, inducing revivals in art, architecture, music, poetry and philosophy. Although greatly affected by the fascism of Mussolini in the modern and contemporary era, Italy has never lost its place as one of the most fundamental artistic centres, home to pioneering movements such as Futurism and Arte Povera, as well as the expressive painting of the Transavanguardia and the Minimalism related to the Zero Movement. Some highly eminent Italian artists from the twentieth and twenty first centuries include Giorgio Di Chirico, Giacomo Balla, Giorgio Morandi, Alberto Giacometti, Lucio Fontana, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Francesco Clemente and Mimmo Paladino.
