DESIGN CONCEPT DESCRIPTION - The coincidence of the Nexus conference venue and the birthplace of Leonardo of Pisa, a.k.a. Leonardo Fibonacci, is the major departing point for the logo design.

The design concept is based on the 3-dimensional representation of the geometrical sequence of squares with Fibonacci numbers as their sides [...].
In Version 1 the squares with side 1 are the bases of the highest volumes of the composition. The sequence continues with diminishing heights of the volumes with sides 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, etc. of their square bases.

The requirement for the 21x21 cm format of the logo informs the final appearance of Version 1. Since 21 is a Fibonacci number, the logic of the composition follows naturally the Fibonacci sequence.

The place of the conference is marked by the subtle presence of the Leaning Tower of Pisa - a world famous landmark and a symbol of the city. [...]
