Ready Player One is out in theaters on March 29th and, in short, it delivers what it promises. It’s a sweet ride that takes you deep into a world packed of geeky and nerdy references, and in the meantime has a story to tell. Not a very fresh story, but a story still. Now, I […]Read More Ready Player One: nostalgia has never felt this good

“The Danger of a Single Story“ is the title of a very popular TED talk by Chimimanda Ngozi Adichie, from 2009. But not only. This post is about our latest Erasmus+ course, which took place in Horažd’ovice (yes, every time I google and copy/paste it) in Czech Republic in November 2017. My team colleagues were Bara Rodi […]Read More The Danger of a single story – Global Education is hard work
(versione italiana di tutto il post qui, sul blog del grande Michele Di Paola, coautore di questo articolo) This is a good story that shows how bad guys don’t always win.

The latest film in the DC cinematic universe is… disappointing. There isn’t much more I can say. True.
