About MeLa

The MeLa Media Lab is a structure of the Iuav University of Venice, founded in 2008 by Malvina Borgherini and Luciano Comacchio, which deals with training, research, and development in the field of representation and communication of architecture and design, cultural products, visual and performing arts.

We cross and relate different professional skills from universities and local companies on the themes of representation and interaction in research fields, administration of artistic and cultural heritage, and production in design and architecture.

We create 3D models for prototyping and digital archiving; we experiment and develop forms of representation, communication, and interaction for artisanal and industrial production; we design training courses and masters aimed at new professions, even within public administrations and private companies.

The MeLa Media Lab has three departments: Research, Learning, and Factory
