CASA EDITRICE SPRINGER 4. ANNO PUBBLICAZIONE 2017 5. BANDELLA LATERALE con breve descrizione dei contenuti del “Libro Pubblicato” This book explores the parallels between the Renaissance during the 14th to 16th centuries and the upheavals in human and physical sciences in the 21st Century that herald an insurgent entrepreneurial renaissance. The first Renaissance, conceived and developed in an urban environment, with the Medici family in Florence as pioneers, was a melting pot of art, culture, science and technology. It is in that context that entrepreneurship derived from artisan tradition and, hence, customized, was born to meet the demands and anticipate the needs of individual consumers. Starting with the mechanical technologies of the first industrial revolution, art, culture and science became separated from entrepreneurship. The later took on Fordist features which depersonalized and, therefore, standardized the producer-consumer relationship. The emerging model of entrepreneurship returns to its origins in customization (e.g., 3D printing technologies, sharing/on-demand economy) strongly linked to the sequence “art-culture-science- technology.”
  2. 2. COMPLEXITY INSTITUTE - APS Corso Genova 32 - 16043 Chiavari – GE - CF: 90059610106 The road to a new entrepreneurial renaissance is traveled by cities with creative communities. These communities actively participate in promoting international talent mobility, encouraging connections among the knowledge nomads who move around the world and the resources and talents rooted locally. Brought back to life under the conditions of the current age, entrepreneurship is once again woven into the fabric of art, culture, science and technology, and contributing to civic identity and pride. Featuring case studies from local experts that highlight innovative initiatives and developments in diverse cities around the world, this book aims to stimulate deep thought, theories and applications in the fields of entrepreneurship and innovation. 6.

INDICARE LE POSSIBILI DECLINAZIONI IN AMBITO SISTEMICO E COMPLESSO CHE SCATURISCONO DALLA LETTURA DEL LIBRO: In conceiving a publishing project for a new entrepreneurial renaissance, the Editor drew inspiration from the interweaving of humanities, social sciences and natural sciences that characterizes the University of Maynooth. Founded in 1997, the University is both the youngest and one of the oldest institutions of higher education in Ireland, tracing its origins to the foundation of the Royal College of St. Patrick in 1795. The intent of the book is to create a bridge between the Renaissance of the period between the second half of the fourteenth and the sixteenth centuries and the present, insurgent renaissance: a bridge that creates an ideal connection between the Renaissance entrepreneurship of that time and the new one of the current time. The book is a collection of diverse studies of how the proposition of an “entrepreneurial renaissance” may indeed be considered as being close to reality in a number of centres around the world. The book explores the hypothesis that the degree of ‘connectedness’ increases idea generation across an ecosystem. The cities highlighted in the book explicitly work to cultivate and orchestrate the ecosystem to help enable entrepreneurial activity to advance growth, sustainability, and a collective consciousness. 8. COME SI DIFFERENZIA DA ALTRI TESTI SIMILI? (EVENTUALE) Authors from various cultural roots, different countries and continents paint the picture from the perspective of their cities. They offer stories that are having a major effect, like a renaissance, on the development of the cities of their narratives. Brought back to life in the different conditions of the current age, sewing together pieces of art, culture, science, technology and entrepreneurship, entrepreneurial renaissance gives cities renewed identity and pride.
