It’s not a detail that we do the math with you with a smile, especially if we think about what skills will be needed in the near future to enter the world of work. The policy must give visibility and valorization of local excellence through tangible projects, just as it happens with the supply chain academies, promoted by the Piedmont region.”
Jonathan Perali, President of CNA Biella that last year awarded the “Bimbo Faber” award to Biella Cresce, quotes an article by Professor Carlo Enrico Bottani in which he writes that the most important impact on society stems from the workshops where students and students coexist. Then he commented: “That is why we are here today, because master craftsmen are a privilege made in Italy and we must be able to create a mix between masters and students to pass on knowledge to future generations.”
The speakers’ interventions began with a dialogue between the artist Daniel Low and co-founder of Biella Cresce Rodolfo Cavalier On the educational value of beauty: “We tend to see beauty as an aesthetic truth, and therefore more superficial, but the value of beauty lies in the tension towards truth, or in the beauty of the soul.”
Matthew Luciania communications expert who has collaborated with Biella Cresce for years, shares the basic structures of narrative and shows the questions to ask to get to know yourself better through creative writing: “Because inventing a story always means submerging our hands and illuminating something. We don’t know what it is, but it’s on the page we just wrote. And it will remain there, if we do not read it again and ask ourselves some questions about ourselves ».
the teacher Fosca Jacob Talk about the prevalence of anxiety and stress among younger people: “Unrest, which unfortunately increased exponentially after the Covid pandemic. But there is a possibility of applying mindfulness interventions at school to reduce these disorders, as shown by various scientific studies ».

And that’s why it’s so important for us to communicate that we can do this together, and to stand by them in the face of those mistakes.”
Then two sofas were placed on the stage where five young men who had participated in Biella Cresce’s promotions in recent years took their seats. They bravely shared their personal stories of success after many hardships at school.
