the first European festival on creativity

2016 Programme

Event #8

Simona Argentieri, Stefano Gastaldi, Giovanna Montinari

New males: as teenagers, in couples, as fathers

Males growing up, in love, at work, in their new roles as fathers, seen for their intimate and often unspoken traits, while still tackling the development of a new form of “masculinity” that faces unprecedented stimuli and horizons. Simona Argentieri will present her considerations on the evolution of the paternal role and its possible outcome on children and on the couple; Giovanna Montinari will speak of the new character of adolescent males, Stefano Gastaldi will propose a view of males which is evolving from the patriarchal model to a society that is more open and less driven by gender stereotypes.
