the first European festival on creativity

2018 Program

Event #35

Gabriele Lolli, Marco Licalzi

Tales from the Tower of Babel

The Lord mixed up their languages and scattered the people of Babel across the planet, yet their tower has never been deserted. It is inhabited by a community that speaks a variety of dialects, but whose members are capable of understanding all of them. To the eyes of others, these people possess a universal language and make stock of knowledge that remains true forever. It is an open community that anyone can join, but there is no preferred path of access. Its components live throughout the globe, they are fluent in the same symbolism and tackle the same issues. They meet every four years in a different city. In ancient Greece, they were called “those who are inclined to learn”. We know them as “mathematicians”.
