THE ALPHABET OF WISDOM

I am not Chinese, however, I do understand that Chinese Philosophers may be the only ones who have more wise sayings than the Romans. Chinese ideograms Starting this new year I am going back to my core values that bring me to the major achievements of a Republic “Res Publica” (meaning the Public thing) that despite my ravaged Italy of today, most specifically gave more importance to the community than to the individual entity of the single Roman. People like Seneca, Cicero...

TEA ROOM AND TOYS

There is no doubt that these are difficult times for most of us, of course excluding the shareholders of Zoom, Nintendo or Netflix, few of us can say we had a great year.  Luckily this infected Planet is cleansing itself so that we can welcome a newly born Fresh and Happy World.

Should we trust our partner, our associates, our leaders?

IS FIDELITY DEAD?  This word expresses a concept difficult to sustain nowadays. It entered the English dictionary in the 15th century from the French “Fidelité”, which was derived from the Latin verb “Fidere” to trust and “fidelis” faithful. This concept of trust has been very much swiped away in the last 3 decades. Should we trust our partners, our associates, our leaders? It seems that the field is much more complicated than before. In the name of freedom, parity of sexes, and...

Resilience or resistance?

There are few species as resilient as the human being. Nevertheless, we are among the less resistant.  Our newborn needs the mother's care, not for months, but for years before they can be self-sufficient. Looking at a newborn frog you can immediately understand why some species do not have this problem. Once they come out of the egg they are completely independent, however, ( and here is where our strength comes from), we can adapt to very many things, and...

WHEN TIME KEEPS SECRETS FOR A LONGTIME; DURABILITY AND ELEGANCE EVENTUALLY POPS OUT

 There is no doubt that being the fourth generation of collectors of works of art has influenced the way Marco Sangiorgi approaches and conceives his furniture. Old ebeniste Masters like Maggiolino, Bulle or Biedermayer have created pieces that have survived the centuries, and are now worth a considerable amount of money. The secret of those pieces was the perfectly aged woods, however, if we want to go back in time, we can admire how the throne and the baby child...

How we stick together

It is incredible how a simple word like “glue” means so much to society and technology at the same time. Men started to understand the importance of sticking things together about 130 million years ago. We have found tools that had been glued (like stone to wood) by Neanderthals with a natural glue from birch trees overheated, a black smelly paste that has been found on archeological sites. At the same time, we have experienced that as Human beings we have...

It is probably the most dramatic peculiarity of this world, or of this dimension in the solar system,  of which men quickly learned the meaning: Is that time runs out irreparably. Often resumed as “tempus fugit” by ancient Romans. Albert Einstein showed us that time is relative The theory of special relativity explains how space and time are linked for objects that are moving at a consistent speed in a straight line and the result is relativeness of time, or at...

We ask, Is the Covid 19 just another Plateau for civilization?

Two worlds have clashed since the Ottomans conquered the Christian City of Constantinople and a sequence of wars and deaths from both sides followed by the Crusades, and then up to the recent Jihad attacks worldwide.
