“Slingshot, the book by Gabor George Burt, opens in Florence, in front of Michelangelo's David, with a brief but thorough analysis of the figure’s state of mind right before his duel with Goliath. Florence, cradle of the Renaissance, was the site of an explosion of creativity unprecedented in human history - and a source of inspiration for me in illustrating two examples of meaningful innovation that took place just few hundred meters from Michelangelo's David. The protagonist in both examples is Roberto Benigni, the famous actor and director who won an Oscar for his 1998 film Life is Beautiful."
In his guest article Luca Leonardini, our Italian champion of meaningful innovation, uses a provocative mix of examples that includes Italian director Roberto Benigni, the Italian poet Dante and the television to create a picture of meaningful innovation. I invite you to take a look at Luca’s article available in original Italian as well as in English.
