Technological innovation and culture, a humanistic translator job

Paper
Clelia Caldesi Valeri, Turin Politecnico, Italy

Cultural institutions are in need of people able to act as intermediators amongst three elements: cultural research, digital and technological innovations, and the public.
How is this translator to be educated? Does he need a vertical view or would it be better to form someone able to understand logics with a humanist point of view?
Such a figure is going to be essential in the smart cities debate in order to include cultural spots as ways to involve citizens in the life quality enhancement.
