progettoDiventerò: A ten-year commitment to training young people
Bracco Foundation is unveiling the results of a ten-year project called “progettoDiverterò” ["Young people project"], for the training of young people in multiple disciplines. The presentation of the project and its outcomes will form part of the celebrations of the 23rd International exhibition in Triennale Milano: the theme of this year’s edition is “Unknown Unknowns. An Introduction to Mysteries.” On Wednesday 20 July at 5.00 pm, a group of experts, institutional representatives and participants of Bracco’s Diverterò project will come together to discuss the power of knowledge and to explore ways of making knowledge freely accessible and of promoting inclusiveness.
The gathering will also serve as the occasion for the assignation of scholarships for 2021-2022.
