Arts, Sport, Entertainment and Culture Knowledge Platform

The Knowledge Platform in Arts, Sport, Entertainment, and Culture coordinates all the research initiatives related to diverse fields where Italy stands out as a world champion.

Italy is one of the few countries in the world whose economic system can rely on a vast cultural heritage, a widespread sense of beauty, creativity, culture, and lifestyle.

The Knowledge Platform investigates common trends and dynamics that industries and organizations leveraging this competitive advantage frequently experience. Among such trends, one may highlight the blurring between the aesthetic and utilitarian functions of the arts, the use of cultural heritage as a primary production resource for manufacturing industries, the generation of revenues from intellectual property rights, and craftsmanship as one of the most precious aspects of creative productions.
