As it Happened: Responsible Success
There are many examples of Italian manufacturers who have operated responsibly for decades producing long-lasting products in an efficient and intelligent way, as well as paying exceptional attention to the workers and surrounding communities. However, Italy is not a hotbed of trailblazing socially responsible companies. From June 25 to July 13, Italia Innovation brought 14 international students to investigate how Italian companies can go beyond their traditional ways in order to be innovative leaders of responsible success.
As it Happened: Artisanship at Scale
For three weeks (June 4-22), Italia Innovation hosted 18 students from leading Universities around the world to explore this question in the Artisanship at Scale program. During the program the participants visited Loison, Luxardo, Levoni and Gucci then talked to entrepreneurs and managers within the companies in order to understand the topic at stake. They also visited Ducati and Ferrari as examples of best practices.

This year, Italia Innovation made the most significant pivot as we redesigned the content experience of the students.
