SEMINARS

NOVENARIO PANIKKAR The   series   of   meeting,   organized   every   year   by   the   Foundation, have   two   main   objectives.   Above   all,   it   is   to   allow   for   an   initial understanding   of   the   teaching   of   Panikkar,   to   face   the   challenges he   helps   us   become   aware   of,   not   ultimately,   but   rather   always current    and    indirect,    the    educational    challenge.    Secondly,    the seminars    offer    the    establishment    of    community    dialogue,    of practical,      open      philosophy      between      the      participants.     An experimental   exploration,   directed   at   the   field   of   philosophical thought,   in   order   to   capture   dimensions   other   than   simple   theory, such as wisdom, and therefore transformative and educational.
WHAT DOES DANTE HAVE TO OFFER US TODAY ? Meetings      held      by      Gianni      Vacchelli.      Nine      seminars      for rediscovering,   starting   from   the   ‘inferno’,   the   incredible   intimate depth,    both    symbolic    and    civil,    of    the    poetry    of    Dante.    It    is necessary   to   ‘liberate’   Dante   from   interpretations   (including   those educational)     that     hide     his     transformative     and     revolutionary message.   A   medieval   legend   stated   that   ‘the   Comedy   would   be understood’   after   700   years:   now   is   the   time!   The   seminar   series deals   with   finding   once   more   the   Comedy,   much   like   a   voyage   of initiation,   both   intimate   and   critical,   and   to   savor   the   intoxicating beauty,   which   nurtures   truth   and   love.   The   seminar   series   can   be attended    as    a    whole    or    simply    for    a    single    class.    It    is    an opportunity   to   read   together   to   discover   that   Dante,   although   he is   a   medieval   writer   very   different   from   ourselves,   he   is   also   both contemporary and someone who beckons to us from the future!
READING WITH CARE A   project   born   as   a   therapy   in   the   form   of   reconciliation   with illness    through    the    administration    of    one    of    the    most    healing natural   medicines   that   man   has   ever   invented:   poetry.   The   project was   developed   by   Mille   Gru   and   Robindart   Factory,   as   well   as through    the    interest    of    the    hospitals    involved,    and    found    the service     and     support     of     the     Arbor     Foundation     due     to     its humanitarian   character.   The   pilot   project   was   put   into   practice   in June    2009    at    the   A.    Manzoni    Hospital    in    Lecco    thanks    to    the collaboration     between     Mille     Gru     and     Robindart     Factory     of Oggiono (LC).
