In the case studies we will present, concrete examples of companies that are already successfully leveraging AI will be illustrated, taking into account the ethical challenges and privacy considerations associated with these practices.

Often, brands promote the "culture of identity," building teams around the personalities of leaders, thus avoiding dreamers with their eyes wide open, ignoring the taciturn because they assume that being introverted is a sign of weakness, and seeking those who resemble them. But often creative success comes from listening to people who don't think like us, from those dreamers who, faced with something taken for granted, look at you with a spark in their eyes and say, "What if..." We discuss this with Riccardo Scandellari and Cristiano Carriero, Hoepli authors, speakers, and branding experts.

Andrea Fontana, one of Italy's leading experts on business storytelling, is the author of Brand storiverso, the book that focuses on the most current ways of telling and telling about ourselves as brands and professionals. To generate positive perceptions, better reputation, more awareness and emotional involvement today we need to create “storiverses”: narrative universes with artfully created values, characters, scenes, settings, emotions. But we have to know how to do this well, otherwise the opportunity will be wasted. We talk about this with Andrea Fontana and Michele Riva.

In the drawer, we keep the most precious things, dreams, and everything we don't have the courage to be or show. We all have projects, goals, and aspirations, real monkeys that remain trapped, unable even to scream out of frustration at having to stay locked in a drawer. Silently. Most people have to face the fear of exposure every day. This is the first communication manual for introverts. The speech will be moderated by Rudy Bandiera

Born as a space for creative freedom and democratic participation, the Internet has transformed into a vast arena dominated by economic interests. Valerio Bassan, author of the book "Rebooting the System: How We Broke the Internet and Why It's Up to Us to Fix It" (Chiarelettere, 2024), reconstructs the processes that have made the network increasingly akin to an "uninhabitable place," and reflects on how we can dismantle the monopolistic and extractive mechanisms governing the web.
