Forum Valignano 2014–2016

Art Valley has launched an extended Mission in the MENA (Middle East-North Africa) area, dedicated to culture, the intellect and meetings of exchange regarding contemporary themes (intelligent technologies, new design and materials, new business sectors), aimed at promoting an experiential crossroads.

In this area (Gulf-Med, Mena Region) a transformation is underway involving the Arabic-speaking countries. More than confrontation – The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order, theorized by Huntington, or the globalization that Fukuyama imposes in The End of History – the prospect is of an unprecedented integration, an unheard of integration of profiles.

The battle is a diplomatic and cultural one. With some countries of the Arab League we have worked towards an effective plan of experiential exchange, involving universities, foundations, academies, minorities, clubs and cultural movements. From the Arab countries, today, are coming innovative messages, cultural processes and scientific research: authentic contributions to civilization.

In Qatar we are promoting a Mission dedicated to the linguistic/cultural comparison and pragmatic meeting, in the XVI and XVII centuries, between Arabic culture and the Milan Renaissance Civil Laboratory where, among others, the genius of Leonardo da Vinci was working.
