For the first time I was asked to change my role and present an important event: Le Professioni del Futuro.
What’s better than facing new challenges and going out one’s own comfort zone?
I took part into really all sorts of events, but this is the first time I was asked to act as a presenter. Present an important event that’s quite another thing.
For me it’s a great honour and I was even defined “the symbol of a new generation full of talents and skills, who are able to “read the future”.
I cannot deny that I was a bit worried this time, as always you do a thing for the first time, but at the end everything was really fine and I was paid by really many compliments!
That’s how it was for me to present such an important event like this!
Talking about future by an optimistic way and with no fear of robots which will conquer the world is possible. And it can also become a national focal point event.
I refer to the first national conference about Professioni del Futuro which took place in Milan on the last 23rd March.
I had the honour to present an important event. As presenter I invited on the stage some important people who talked about the working future under endless points of view, all different, but with an important focus that in some way was quoted in the major part of the interventions: “The 65% of the jobs the children of today will do when they’ll grow up have not been invented, yet.”
From this consideration, the several people invited on the stage talked about the new soft skills required by the companies, how to be able the soft skills are got by everyone in the companies, what will be the professions which will develop most in the following years…and really much more. All interesting interventions that by different ways I can still remember them.
There were some interventions that particularly struck me: Floriana Ferrara's story IBM and the focus group’s one made by Intribe (which organized the event) at the KC Ludum elementary schools.
Floriana Ferrara is a woman fond of Information Technology who loved this world even when she was as old as I. But we are talking about 30 years ago so about a completely male tech field.
To make people listen to her and make people notice her, she had to wear as a boy. Of course, she couldn’t stand this thing so she decided to do something to change once she entered IBM. She created a project called NERD (Non È Roba da Donne=It’s not stuff for women) where the 16 years old girls are protagonist through interesting and interactive courses.
Every day she looks for raising the female teenagers who enrol in the STEM’s subjects, but especially in IT.
The other story which struck me particularly is the KC Ludum school’s one, a design elementary school in Milan teaching children by a completely different way.
Since the beginning children learn what a mental map is and what doing brain storming means.
Listen to Federica, one among the little girls taking part into the focus group, was really super.
I introduce you also other speakers of the event, with direct links to what they do. Enter their websites, discover their story, what they do. They are one more interesting than the other!

Domenico Ioppolo (Campus Editori) who talked to us about Salone Dello Studente and realized an interesting survey with students of the high schools analysing the reference points and their values. From this survey came out that the values of the young people like me are very unlike compared to their parents’ ones.
Do you remember my partecipation at Salone dello Studente in Rome?
Watch this video: Riparte il Futuro, a digital community of about one million people who tries to fight corruption promoting transparency and certainty of right.
This conference was a really great opportunity for me, both because for the first time I measured myself as a presenter and for the wonderful stories I had the chance to listen to.
I say a heartfelt thank you to Mirna Pacchetti to have believed in me so much that she proposed to me to present the event, to have trusted me totally and have supported me.
The tip for all the young people as old as I, but also for the bigger ones, is always the same: Milan is near, these events are free. Take part into them to open your mind.
Everyone needs to oxygenate one’s brain!
