On Saturday, May 18, 2019 at the La Scala Theatre (Milan, Italy) was the seventh edition of the presentation of the prizes and scholarships of "progettoDiventerò- Bracco Foundation for the young”, both geographic and disciplinary.
Besides being a chance for the young winners of the various prizes to meet each other, it was also the occasion for assessing the results of the project, which for seven years has accompanied talented students or young professionals in their career, promoting innovative ways of consolidation between the academic world and the world of work.
In the seven years of the project:
• €1,750,000 have been invested in young people.
• The candidates in the seven additions totalled 1954, 555 of them won prizes and scholarships.
• More than half of the Diventerò members are women (62%) and a quarter of foreigners (25%). The average age is 24.
• 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. In this light, in addition to developing and promoting professional opportunities with progettoDiventerò, the Foundation has supported since 2012, as a Founding Member, La Scala Theatre Academy.
