In this article we are happy to tell you about one of the speakers who will entertain you during the Symposium: Simone Perotti!


Manager for twenty years in the communication, PR, lobbying and marketing departments for several Italian and international companies, Mr. Perotti is now… writer and sailor!
He has published many novels and essays such as Rapsodia Mediterranea (Mondadori 2019); I bei momenti (Mondadori, 2021); L’Altra Via (Solferino Libri, 2022), all on the theme of changing life and criticizing our current model of life, economy and development.
He also wrote and hosted the television program “Un’altra Vita” on RAI 5.
Since 2005 he has also managed a blog, www.simoneperotti.com and a personal page on the Italian newspaper “Il Fatto Quotidiano”.

The non-fiction novel “Mediterranean Rhapsody”, was written during and after the long sailing trip (seven years, 20,000 miles!!) throughout the Mediterranean, Black Sea and Atlantic by the Mediterranean Project Association, founded by himself (www.progettomediterranea.com). The expedition (aboard a design ketch French of 1975), realizes cultural and social projects and hosts experiments, samples and scientific activities carried out by volunteers in collaboration with university, governmental and non-governmental research institutes (ISPRA, SAFHOS, University of Milan Bicocca, etc.). Progetto Mediterranea aims to raise attention on the Mediterranean, create a stage from which to connect different shores, distant countries, thought and action of the Mediterranean and the Mediterranean, enclosing it in an area metaphorically connected and homogeneous through the symbolism of the sea journey that connects and unites.

Progetto Mediterranea brings with it a message of peace, respect for the environment, indignation for violence and abuse, rejection of social injustices and all totalitarianism, love for difference, passion for communication and dialogue, cult of freedom.
