Description

Seven letters addressed to Italians, full of curiosities and unpublished considerations, which describe the return to the scenes of the Western capital, according to a representation however distant from the idea that many still have of the Big Apple, linked more than anything else to Wall Street, Sex & the City and Woody Allen. Each letter tells, from an unusual and well-documented point of view, the newfound economic and social vivacity of New York City in the new Twenties. The Big Apple as told by Galletto is one of the most progressive cities on the planet, with cutting-edge welfare and environmental policies, where an unprecedented business profile led by young activists of a new, multicultural capitalism, aimed at providing social services and to develop new technologies. New York City is a model from which Italian cities should draw inspiration: it hinges on formidable municipal agencies, on an endless network of non-profit organizations, on a science and knowledge incubator interconnected with universities and research centers, active in Life Science and focused on projects such as One NYC and Computer Science for All. Today in New York there is an air of a new Renaissance, facilitated by the public hand, which has led the city to reach second place in the world after the famous Silicon Valley, as a technological innovation hub, in terms of number of start-ups and venture capital investments, ranking first in Life Sciences and female tech entrepreneurship.
