I have always lived immersed in art.
The experience of beauty has guided my education and formation; still today it is the center of my life, the secret of my success.
I bid farewell to the dance stages of the world after thirty years in order to provide to new generations—the creators of tomorrow’s civilization—opportunities that today might to many appear to be a rare privilege.
PENSARE oltre Cultural Foundation exists to inspire and disseminate a new concept and perspective of education and personal development, to the benefit of individuals and the society.
These days Art is regarded as an instrument to achieve other goals: to learn, to entertain, and even as therapy. It is time for “pensare oltre,” for thinking beyond! The experience of beauty that is Art is itself a transcendent goal, not just a means but an end, an end that is the seed of limitless beginnings. It is for this reason that we have given life to Masters of Arts of PENSARE oltre©.
Masters of Arts of PENSARE oltre is a pioneering approach to education and personal development that puts Art at the center, not only as something to do and to experience, but as a condition of life that provides a context for the freedom and power to create one’s own future.
Creating Art in collaboration with master artists (as occurred in the Renaissance bottega, the Italian art studio of the 15th century) can allow everyone, beginning in childhood, to become a protagonist in the story of discovery of their own talents. These discoveries teach us that each child, each person, is unique and uniquely valuable, and the strength of that difference is the source of prosperity and freedom in our communities, our nations, and our world.
