AMBASCIATORE IN VISITA ALLA SEDE GIAPPONESE DI EUROTECH

Visita dell’ambasciatore Giorgio Starace alla sede della sussidiaria giapponese di Eurotech: Advanet, che si trova ad Okayama, capoluogo dell’omonima prefettura. In Giappone, Eurotech ha uffici anche a Tokyo. Lo sviluppo di un dialogo economico e culturale tra Italia e Giappone e il proseguimento delle consultazioni con le eccellenze italiane nel Paese del Sol Levante: sono stati questi i presupposti della visita dell’ambasciatore d’Italia ad una delle pochissime aziende italiane insediate anche in Giappone. ‘Questa visita ci ha fatto molto piacere – spiega Roberto Siagri, amministratore delegato di Eurotech che ha presenziato all’incontro in video conferenza – ciò che rende Eurotech una particolarità per il Giappone è il fatto che sono pochissime le imprese italiane presenti. Ovviamente, ciò ci inorgoglisce’. Advanet conta 150 addetti nelle due sedi di Okayama e Tokyo. ‘Il Giappone ha dimostrato una grande resilienza dal punto di vista sociale ed economico, durante questa pandemia: le conseguenze sono minime. Si tratta di un Paese che da tempo si è organizzato per combattere contro virus di diverso genere, con grande rispetto verso il prossimo. Da sempre in Giappone si indossa la mascherina nella quotidianità. C’è grande responsabilità, ad ogni livello, nella popolazione giapponese, ed estrema fedeltà all’azienda per cui lavorano’ continua Siagri. Il Giappone rimane la terza potenza al mondo per prodotto interno lordo. ‘La grande evoluzione digitale del Paese lo ha reso più pronto ad affrontare la situazione pandemica: anche per questo le conseguenze sono state mitigate. Un percorso, verso l’avanzamento tecnologico che deve continuare, e che può essere preso ad esempio anche dall’Italia’. ‘Advanet rappresenta un’altra straordinaria storia di successo della collaborazione italo-giapponese nel campo dell’alta tecnologia che testimonia l’eccellente livello di integrazione tra i settori produttivi dei due Paesi. Un altro fiore all’occhiello per l’Italia in Giappone’, così si è espresso l’ambasciatore Starace incontrando la dirigenza dell’azienda.

It will be the second edition of the conference -Identitas, the same but different- held last June at the Castle of Udine and which had among the guests, not without some controversy, Aleksandr Dugin, Russian philosopher very close to President Vladimir Putin, but also Diego Fusaro , Massimo Fini, Giulietto Chiesa and others.

The event, sponsored and promoted by the Municipality of Udine, is organized under the artistic direction of Emanuele Franz, philosopher, writer, poet, director of the Audax publishing house and creator of the conference.
The meeting promises to be a cultural symposium of the utmost importance, which can develop a meaningful discussion on crucial themes of contemporary world and about questions that, in the present era of crisis of values, can be considered as a deep and solid reflection on the relation between scientific research and religious faith and also between insight and reason, technology and passion. In this sense the event aims to offer a relevant example of high cultural value.

The project is involving a great number of intellectual and religious personalities through multimedial contributions, reports, interviews and direct participation, starting from Tenzin Gyatso, the current 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet, Noam Chomsky Former Professor at the MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) of Boston and considered as one of the greatest scientists and philosophers of the 20th century, the French philosopher Alain de Benoist, but also the mathematician, logician, essayist and Italian academic Piergiorgio Odifreddi, the journalistMarcello Veneziani, Reinhold Messner, one of the best living alpinists, who will offer his point of view about the sacredness of mountains, the singer-songwriter Angelo Branduardi, about religiousness of music, Mons. Guido Genero, minister and Vicar General of the Archdiocese of Udine, the physicist Antonino Zichichi and the Hon. Gian Luigi Gigli, politician, neurologist and Italian academic. There are also the interviews with Yogi Urgyen Norbu Rinpoche, Tibetan Buddhist monk in exile in Nepal, Werner Arber, Swiss biologist, Nobel Prize for Medicine in 1978, Brian Josephson, Nobel Prize for Physics in 1973, now Professor Emeritus at the University of Cambridge, Steven Weinberg, Nobel Prize for Physics in 1979 and the world-famous American philosopher, Douglas Hofstadter, winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Essay writing in 1980, son of the Nobel Prize for Physics Robert Hofstadter.

In short, a monumental panel of world-wide dimention that the philosopher Emanuele Franz, already known to the public for his philosophical writings which are not politically correct and for his daring initiatives, has set up from his native mountain village at Moggio Udinese, a small village of little more than a thousand souls, where he lives with essential means nurturing the Love for Knowledge.

Since the beginning, given the size of this event and the personalities involved, there has been no lack of interest and good wishes: Alberto Angela wishes Emanuele Franz the best success to this initiative, the writer Claudio Magris considers it “A meeting on a major subject, essential for ourliving”, Emanuele Severino, a few days before his departure in January, let know to the organizer Franz that he wanted to dedicate his blessing to this meeting.

Also the actor and martial art champion, Jean-Claude Van Damme writes to Emanuele Franz and congratulates him with these words: “In this conference, Emanuele Franz is dealing with top questions and I really appreciate all this”. Finally, a really special interest came from the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin, through his Press office at the Kremlin, that writes Emanuele Franz and wishes every success to the project, for its themes and the personalities involved.
