We are used to thinking of History as a progression of events. And often only of Great Events. On the contrary, History shows that it often moves forward by fractures, ruptures, turning points, even linked to small events that are nevertheless capable of changing society. And they are often technological shocks: inventions, discoveries, solutions that change lives, society even people's mindsets.
What are the developments/fractures of our recent Histo ry? How have they changed our society in many ways, often even unexpectedly?
"Fractures/The history of technological breakthroughs" sets out to analyse some large and small events that have shaken our history since the 20th century. In this second season of the series, not only is the medium changing - no more online meetings but podcasts - but the focus is above all on digital technological fractures , with a glance however at another place suddenly once again at centre stage.
In each episode, after an introduction on the topic by Stefania Carini, there will be discussion/comment with guests.
