The power of ideas is what shapes our cultures, and helps us to improve ourselves as humans. It can do so through artistic expression, to help us all to come to terms with new concepts. Can art and creativity be the symbolically “armed arms” of our most disruptive yet valuable ideas, giving them strength and forcefulness? Can they help us changing the world?

She is the founder of Indica, a creative consultancy company focussing on visual communication. Being able to produce popular communication campaigns around Switzerland and Italy, Patrizia embodies the role of young creative and entrepreneur.
