Human Creativity

Italians know art. Art helps us heal, circumvent the limitations of language, and exercise creative wellness in our personal and professional lives. In this last year, have you turned to the arts – fine, visual, and performing – to communicate expressively and cultivate resilience? Our species has leaned on art since the dawn of time, and over time, neuroscience and cognitive research have taught us why the arts are essential to human psychological development. There is nowhere better to stretch one’s creative limits than Italy, where inspiration is inevitable and art is all around you
