    A full 76% of Diventerò alumni  have a job or are engaged in studying or training and 58% of these are employed with fixed term or unlimited contracts.

    Speakers were Lanfranco Li Cauli, La Scala Theatre Marketing director; Alberto Martinelli, Emeritus Professor Emerito at the Milan Università degli Studi; Gaela Bernini, General Secretary, Bracco Foundation; Diventerò members Francesca Rigiroli (research), Tommaso Rovetta (art and science), Giorgia Di Tommaso (Informatics), Domingo Noguera (business and sustainability); Diana Bracco, President of Bracco Foundation. Moderator was Monica D’Ascenzo, a journalist with Il Sole 24 Ore.
    On this occasion, also the winners of the Call for Ideas "Beyond the Judgment" - 1st Edition of the Artainment@School project were awarded.

    A multidisciplinary approach and integration among different fields of knowledge are important qualitative criteria in planning the activities of the Bracco Foundation.
