Inevitable constant reference to the current geopolitical situation that is generating new energy balances: security of flows, environmental and social sustainability and cost competitiveness are the three pillars that will be able to lead the country towards energy self-sufficiency, according to Stefano Venier, Chief Executive Officer of Snam. 

The conflict, and even before that the pandemic, gave a push in the direction of agri-food self-sufficiency, an issue on which they discussed among others Paolo De Castro, MEP and first vice-president of the Agriculture and Rural Development Committee, e Alessandro Terzulli, chief economist of Sace. 

The prospects of technology were also at the center of the debate, with the metaverse and blockchain in the foreground and the testimonies of those who are already investing in this space, such as Marcus of Syracuse, CEO of PostePay e Stefano DeAlessandri, CEO of ANSA.

Technologies that are integrating in all sectors, including culture, which must become an attractive employment lever for the new generations, as suggested by the Undersecretary for Culture Gianmarco Mazzi. Precisely, young people and the jobs of the future: she intervened on the subject Augusta Montaruli, new university undersecretary who has called for dialogue with the business world for the creation of a skills plan. And for business he answered Laura Dalla Vecchia, president of Confindustria Vicenza, who underlined the many elements of uncertainty present at the moment, which make it difficult for entrepreneurs to make choices. It is the new world (dis)order, within which the Festival has tried to provide a compass for orientation.
