The project will consist of approximately 25 public events, each dedicated to a specific problematic with the participation of specialists, invited to share a specific “case-story” and to reflect about some more general aspects of their professional experience. Therefore, the events will become concise conventions developed in an introductory talk and in the successive interventions of the other participants, but also with presentations done by a single guest, as well as dialogues or interviews.

Each event will be prepared through thematic dossiers that afterwards will be published, along with the documentation of the events, on the website of Laboratorio Como and on the new website of Fondazione Antonio Ratti (online from December 2010).

Laboratorio Como is a project of research and analysis of the Camera di Commercio. It inquiries the multiple connections that unify economic growth, innovation, urban development, culture, creativity, evaluating the role that Como and its territory can play in the current context.

The project is under the scientific responsibility of the Director of the Fondazione Antonio Ratti, Marco De Michelis, with the general coordination of Filipa Ramos and the collaboration of Centro ASK (Art, Science, Knowledge) of University Bocconi of Milan and of the Graduate Program in Visual and Performing Arts of the University IUAV of Venice.
