Casa Paganini - medical humanities and artificial intelligence

Dibris, a centre where scientific, technological research meets artistic, cultural production, was established in 2005 in an international context of interdisciplinary cooperation between the University of Genoa, the Region Liguria, the Province and Municipality of Genoa. It created the Casa Paganini which, with the rise of new technologies, languages and artistic practices (including sanification, gaming and dynamic images) involving the emotions and movement, are an instrument for enhancing relational and expressive skills, a stimulus in rehabilitation processes introduced in hospital protocols, (ex. Genoa’s Ospedale Galliera), for rehabilitation, for the management of pathologies with special attention to degenerative disorders. Approaches are being developed for active ageing.
