MADE IN CHINA

Nel 1978 la Cina decise di aprirsi al mondo.

Con la morte di Mao Zedong, preceduta dalla ben nota Rivoluzione Culturale, Deng Xiaoping sale al potere facendosi portavoce della Politica della Porta Aperta. Oggi la Cina viene associata dall’opinione pubblica alla fabbrica del mondo per il suo ruolo di primo esportatore di merci al mondo. Ma nella Cina contemporanea che ruolo ricoprono concetti quali innovazione e creatività?

TRUST YOUR EYES (IF YOU WANT TO KNOW ABOUT CHINA)

Top executives need to go to China and stay for a couple of weeks. Visit Shanghai, Hong Kong, Beijing, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Tianjin. And while you’re at it, spend a few days in Taipei. Then go back again.

[…]

If you really want to know what’s happening in Chinese-speaking Asia, the statistics tell only part of the story. For the rest of the story, trust your eyes.

I do agree with the idea of going and seeing, but I do believe that anyway a couple of weeks is no way enough to know and learn about China. Staying there a couple of weeks you can only pretend to know China and the Chinese market.

Tutti a tavola! is an innovative initiative for fundraising. Instead of asking you money for charity, they invented a game. Last thursday, friday and today, instead of spending time deciding what to cook for lunch or dinner, the organizers give you a list of Milan chefs who designed a menu with three courses. You can pick one, follow the recipes and buy at the grocery stores all around Piazzale Lagosta, Milan. While you are buying, you are asked if you want to add an euro - that will be used by the organizers to buy food for people in need, and get a sticker. If you get 5 stickers, you will be given a bag with the whole recipe book and a magazine, “La cucina italiana”. By the way we picked Cesare Battisti, chef at Ratanà, Milan. I like this gamification supporting fund-raising!
