Cultural Heritage is food for development


Feed Your Brain


 

On Friday 28 August at 18.00 CEST, in the Cluster Bio Mediterraneo pavilion of Expo Milan, event “Feed your Brain” took place. Because cultural heritage is food for development.
Irene Pivetti, President Emeritus at the Chamber of Deputies and President of Only Italia, Carmine Marinucci, Board Director of ENEA and Secretary General of DiCultHer, and Nicola Barbuti, Professor of Bibliography and Librarianship at University of Bari, attended.


«The Universal Exposition – Irene Pivetti commented - is the great occasion to bring to light and share contact points, to immersively involve ourselves, through technology, in each other's experiences, enriching each other with diversity. In regard to such extraordinary and uncommon challenge, Only Italia is proud to present at Expo 2015 its strategical partnership with DiCultHer – Digital Cultural Heritage School, a network joining over sixty Italian cultural organisations (universities, research bodies, schools, high technical institutes, cultural institutes, public and private associations and enterprises) born with the aim of contributing to the development of digital skills indispensable in a smart society, at the same time providing a European and international model.
Each one by its side and according to its competences, Only Italia and DiCultHer identify culture with the fundamental asset and starting point for development of stable and durable relationships between peoples, where any other relation, be it commercial, financial, political, strategical, is nothing but a direct or indirect derivative».
