A lectio magistralis on light as an instrument of social innovation
"iGuzzini. A cultural company fostering social innovation through lighting" was the title of the speech given by Adolfo Guzzini when opening the first semester of the Venice International University. The President Emeritus’ lectio magistralis gave an overview of the historic milestones, international partnerships and major projects that have led to iGuzzini being hailed today as an international ‘culture-focused company’.
The opening ceremony took place on 12th September in the Aula Magna of the Venice International University. Located on the Venetian island of San Servolo, the VIU is a consortium of 18 universities from all around the world, which has been working together since 1995 to exchange ideas and knowhow through the development and promotion of academic research and training programmes aimed at students, professionals and policy makers.
