MediaTech 1995

TheU started life as an idea born at a workshop held in the Fortezza da Basso in Florence in 1996. A team of people comprising computer professionals and students brainstormed the idea for a virtual university and created a prototype in Alpha World for a presentation at the end of the workshop.
