“From Leonardo to the Microchip: Italian Creativity and Innovation in the Economy of the Future”


Join us for a lively multimedia performance celebrating the power of unconventional thinking as a driver of innovation at the crossroads between counterculture and hi-tech through portraits of inspiring figures, some with Italian names: from Lawrence Ferlinghetti, patriarch of the Beat Generation, to Adriano Olivetti, visionary entrepreneur from Ivrea, and Federico Faggin from Vicenza, who created the first microchip and invented the touch technology.
