READING & PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBITION
Reading in the Dark
A highly experiential and engaging format, Reading in the Dark allows University students and visually impaired readers to take turns reading literary paragraphs that LIA makes accessible in various ways: printed and digital, enlarged font, braille and speech synthesis, allowing words to take shape in the dark. This event raises awareness of content accessibility and the socio-cultural inclusion of people with visual impairments through a participatory experience that allows different forms of reading an accessible text to be experienced, through the eyes, hands and ears.
The reading is accompanied by an exhibition of photographs taken during educational activities carried out by the LIA Foundation with blind and visually impaired people.

This event is part of the MiCA-Milano per la Cultura Accessibile project, with the support of Fondazione Cariplo.

Speakers
Richard Greenslade Bocconi University

READING & INTERVIEW
Narrating Catastrophe and the Catastrophe of Narration
“I would like to talk about how hard it is to describe Evil, an exercise I practiced for 30 years when writing the news: how it spreads, how it creeps into life, how ordinary people 'unconsciously' become its ideal prey. How many times I could not find the words..."
This is how Svetlana Aleksievič, 2015 Nobel laureate in Literature, introduces her talk for BookCity during the 11th Science for Peace World Conference.

Speaker
Svjatlana Aleksievič Nobel Laureate for Literature 2015

DISCUSSION & DEBATE
Rights, Employment, Migration and Modern Slavery
In the absence of a plan for legalization, the large number of incoming migrants feeds pockets of illegal immigrants in precarious situations, easy victims of exploitation by criminal organizations. An army of people who only find illegal employment: without rights or protection. The companies that exploit them compete unfairly with those who comply with labor laws and steal money from the state coffers. The approach to the phenomenon of migration must be reviewed, inevitably, reintroducing it – including in the media – as a resource. Valuing legal immigration calls for a reversal of perspectives: no longer should foreigners be criminalized and expelled, but rather welcoming and legalizing them should be promoted through policies to combat illegal employment and welfare instruments that, by supporting the most vulnerable, allow everyone to live better lives. We will discuss this topic with Aboubakar Sourmahoro, author of the book, Umanità in rivolta.

Speakers
Maurizio del Conte Bocconi University
Stefano Liebman Bocconi University
Melissa Miedico Bocconi University
Aboubakar Soumahoro Union Activist and Author

BOOK PRESENTATION & DEBATE
Culture: Driving Force of Evolution
One of the strengths of Luca Cavalli-Sforza's work, who is counted among leading geneticists worldwide, is how his approach to scientific research has been embraced multidisciplinarily. Telmo Pievani comments on his concept of cultural evolution: a reading of the cultural development of the last 60,000 years, through the lens of the Darwinian theory of evolution.
