You chose: silicon valley

  • Federico Faggin
    Federico Faggin è uno dei più grandi inventori dell’ultimo secolo – così lo definiscono gli storici della Silicon Valley - perché disegnando l’Intel 4004 ovvero “il computer su un chip” ha avviato la rivoluzione digitale che ha cambiato la nostra vita. Faggin è stato il secondo ospite della serie “Italian Creators of our Time” all’Istituto italiano di cultura di New York. Prossimamente uscirà in Italia l'autobiografia di quest'italiano ancora troppo sconosciuto dei nostri tempi. Faggin ci ha anticipato il racconto di alcune tappe fondamentali della sua vita.
  • When you hear the story of Elena Favilli and how she got to publish her series of books Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls, two things come to your mind: first, she might as well be featured in one of these best-sellers dedicated to strong female role models, secondly, everybody, even boys, should get to know and appreciate the fearless women portrayed in these books, a literary phenomenon that over three years has been translated into 48 languages (the Chinese version will be released soon) and sold about 4 million copies.
  • When we sat down with Alessandro Piol, the Italian venture capitalist based in new york who has 30 years of experience in the field of technology, he opened up about how his father— in Italy, a pioneer in the sector—taught him to love his work. He also explained how he chooses projects to finance and why New York presents even greater prospects than Silicon Valley. And he concluded with a little “message in a bottle” for young Italians looking to come to the City to develop an idea.
