FROM THE RENAISSANCE TO THE ITALIAN FACTOR A Talk by Sociologist Francesco Morace THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 25, 5:00PM PST Online via Zoom
The very essence of Italianness can be summed up in specific elements that make the Italian Way to design-thinking unique: human values, tailor-made, artistic touch, taste, attention to detail and the pursuit of excellence. In this webinar Italian sociologist Francesco Morace will identify and present values and behaviours that, taken together, constitute the Italian Factor. Especially in this Covid phase of radical change, these elements might prove to be consistent with the new paradigms of the future: Unique & Universal, Crucial & Sustainable, Trust & Sharing, Quick & Deep.
This webinar is presented by the Dante Alighieri Society of BC.
