“Knowing how to communicate will set us free.”
L’Accademia del Rinascimento Mediterraneo (Academy of the Mediterranean Renaissance) is a community of rejuvenating transition that is facilitating the New Renaissance. This awakening is both interior and collective, and will indicate the way for communal happiness and authenticity of human relations, relationship with nature, place, economy/business, arts, and craftsmanship.
“We are near to a changing of the ages. We are in the midst of transformation, of transition. We gather together and nurture the signals of this that have existed for many years. We monitor the talents, dreams, perceptions, opinions, and relations. Now, we are certain, we are undergoing a powerful convergence of human energies that is starting a New Renaissance, a new era founded on a new kind of humanity.”
L’Accademia generates thoughts, suggestions, individual and collective actions. The Academy is not a place or a container, but a transitory community – a motion, a thought that perpetuates itself throughout human kind. By harvesting together these energies, the hope is that humanity will rediscover a new perspective and observe the world near and far with a sense of the beauty and equality that is possible everywhere.
The primary activities of the Academy are study and research, education, conversations, creative workshops, designing investment strategies, cultural initiatives, economic initiatives, and increasing cultural, social, economic, and political influence.
