India has been for seventy years the largest democracy in the world. It is one of the fastest growing emerging economic powers. India is the country with the largest youth in the world – 650 millions of women and men with age below 25; one million of young persons entering each month the job market. This new generation is the carrier of a new culture, new identities, new initiatives; it is changing India and will have an impact over the world. But contemporary India is almost unknown to the Italian audience – or seen through the biasing lens of stereotypes and commonplaces. Ca’ Foscari University and the Italian Embassy in Delhi are organizing an event that will open a new conversation with contemporary India, introducing some of its emerging, vibrant creative communities: startup entrepreneurs, young fashion and textile designers, art and heritage institutions engaged in innovative initiatives.
