In an era of transformations, culture is the engine for the development of knowledge, participation, and democracy.

Massimo Bray tells why culture should become central in a time of great transformations: to feed knowledge as a prerequisite for sharing values; to protect the Italian heritage; to promote new models of participation and democracy, and also as an instrument of dialogue and peace.

Reflection on these issues also passes through experiences as the Minister of Cultural Heritage and Activities and Tourism; missions to Iran, Chile, Jordan, and Palestine; journeys throughout Italy; listening to requests for change; the belief that through culture we can change communities and that there is a thread that links the myriads of individuals and associations active in cultural promotion.
