    The future. Story of an idea

    Future and memory. An ability to plan and a commitment to achieve. Innovation and its roots. Creativity and factory. In these times of crisis and metamorphosis, we need to think clearly and meet change with passion, interpret the traits of our times, understand, for instance, where we are headed, through a book published by Laterza and entitled, with exemplary conciseness, Il futuro. Storia di un’idea (The future. Story of an idea). This book features 55 authors writing about philosophy and architecture, music and theatre, science and literature, politics and economics, reflecting on works by Sophocles and Plato, Leonardo da Vinci and Brunelleschi, Machiavelli and Giordano Bruno, Marinetti and Emilio Salgari, Keynes and Olivetti, Le Corbusier and Chagall, John Lennon and Pope Francis. The result is the simultaneously unique and collaborative narration of a long-term commitment focused on planning and building a better, fairer and more equitable future, different from past eras and the current times we are still struggling to overcome. It ends with a piece of advice, wisely expressed by Karl Popper: “The future is very open and depends on us, on all of us. It depends on what you and I and many other people do, today, tomorrow, and the day after tomorrow... On our wishes, on our hopes and fears. It depends on how we see the world, and on how we assess the open possibilities of the future.”
