“Su una parete della nostra scuola c’è scritto grande ‘I Care’, è il motto intraducibile dei giovani americani migliori. ‘Me ne importa’, ‘mi sta a cuore’.

– don Lorenzo Milani (27.5.1923 – 26.6.1967)

(Translation: ‘I Care’ is written large on one wall of our school, it is an English motto used by the best young Americans that cannot be translated. ‘I do care’, ‘I care for it’)

 

What does it mean to take care? What are the things we care for? Who are the people who took care of you when you were a child?

What did the Acton family care for? How does NYU take care of their legacy?

This Museum Meeting aims to talk about the meaning of this word, from its philological meaning to its message and role today, especially in relation to the cultural heritage.

(Light lunch included – event open to NYU Florence students-only)
