Centrica s.r.l. is a company born in Florence in 1999 from the experience of 3 engineers – Marco Cappellini, Paolo De Rocco and Paolo Romoli – and engaged in the digitization of works and places of art. It has developed ArtCentrica, an EdTech platform that allows you to catalogue, view and compare high-resolution works, carry out online visits and thematic itineraries and innovate the traditional approach to art education in an interactive and shared way. Indeed, Centrica’s goal is to provide concrete and cutting-edge solutions to the growing demand for innovative tools to support the digitization of museums and distance learning, induced by the pandemic: a market – the EdTech one – in growing expansion, which globally, it expects an increase of about $158 billion between 2018 and 2025.
Centrica is now supported by Fondazione Social Venture Giordano Dell’Amore (or “FSVGDA”), which has invested in the S.r.l. €200,000 in equity. The investment was made as part of “Impact4Art”, a 1MLN/€ “impact” program to support the recovery of the Art and Culture sector, launched at the beginning of 2021 by FSVGDA in synergy with Fondazione Cariplo.
