the first European festival on creativity

2018 Program

Event #8

Ian Goldin

Our new Renaissance

Periods of great creativity and progress have always been accompanied by increasing extremism and instability in the social community. The developments that took place during the Italian Renaissance – with the spread of the printed press and of incredible creativity – could be compared to those we are experiencing with the advent of the Internet and digitalization, with developments in the field of artificial intelligence or robotics, with global progress and the increase of life expectancy. This growth, however, while full of opportunities, also brings some new forms of systemic risks: transformations in the working world, an increase in inequality, pandemics, cyber-attacks, climatic change and financial crises. In this context, what can we learn from the Renaissance that took place 500 years ago?
