On Tuesday, May the 26th at 5 pm, UNINETTUNO Digital Talk on “The Impact on Cultural Industry: Survival or Recovery?” will be held online. As a new opportunity to think, analyze and get a deeper insight into the effects of the pandemics, this event aims at taking stock, more specifically, on the health conditions and future prospects of the world of art and culture as well as on the measures required to support and relaunch the whole cultural industry. Being introduced and moderated by Prof. F. G. Angelini, contract professor of administrative law at UNINETTUNO, to discuss this issue there will be: Prof. Giovanni Puglisi, Vice President of the Istituto della Enciclopedia Italiana Treccani and Dean of the Cultural Heritage Faculty of UNINETTUNO University, Dr. James Bradburne, Director of the Pinacoteca di Brera and Dr. Sergio Escobar, Director of the Piccolo Teatro of Milan.
"The lockdown caused a halt of the activities in the entire cultural heritage and performing arts industry, producing serious effects at economic as well as on socio-cultural level”, as was stated by Prof. Angelini. "The Italian artistic and cultural industry – he goes on – actually, does not only represent an excellence of the Country, but also a strategic factor for development and social cohesion, a tool to preserve our roots as well as a driver for the relaunch.”
"Our University goes on being committed in creating occasions for getting an deeper insight, analyzing and reflecting on the effects that the current emergency period produces in our society, on the economic, social and human context.” The Rector of UNINETTUNO, Prof. Maria Amata Garito, states.
This Digital Talk as well takes place in live streaming on UNINETTUNO’s platform and Facebook page.
