The Agorà of the Youth

Silvana Mangione (October 20, 2008)
The youngest "Italian piazza" ever: waiting for the First Convention of "Young Italians in the World" (Rome, December 2008)

Since time began, a common meeting space has been conducive to reunions and discussions among people. Originally it was a gathering around the fire with music and talk, tales and learning, the calming of fears, and the birth of myths that would grow into wisdom. The young listened to the old who told stories that would be expanded, enriched, reinvented over time, eventually becoming traditions and knowledge that would never be forgotten.

Silvana Mangione is Vice Secretary General of CGIE (General Council for Italian Abroad) for Anglophone Countries
