Racism, a Product of Modernity

Author: Fernando Schwarz

April 11, 2021

Racism can be expressed and experienced on different levels. Not knowing how to value another race or another religion is part of an ethical conception of racism.

Author: Agostino Dominici

January 7, 2021

The period known as the Roman Kingdom with its seven kings represents the time when the seeds of an emerging civilisation were firmly planted in the “Italian” soil.

May 13, 2017

When looking at ancient archaeological features one can be mesmerised by the beauty, complexity and grandeur of some of the buildings, statues or artefacts.

It is a fact that mankind has lost and rediscovered knowledge in its short known history.
