Field trips are always stimulating, where we have the opportunity to meet and talk with great names of the Italian cultural scene. During the conversation with Paolo Baratta, President of Biennale di Venezia, it was interesting to understand his vision of art’s social function and the role of the Venice Biennale in the contemporary art scene. Baratta pointed out that visitors should be treated as people and not customers. The exhibitions are about exchanges between the art and the visitor, and their unique experience, where every visitor has the chance to be motivated and inspired by them. Learning from different points of view, perspectives and institutions makes the MAMA at SDA Bocconi a more diverse and dynamic program. Going beyond school walls give us practical skills, expanding the knowledge we learn in the classroom.
