This smart “moderator” acted as a catalyst, captivating the attention of every participant with multimedia prompts, from which he distilled key words and concepts alternating monologues to more participatory moments, thus differentiating the rhythm of the event.

The contributions that have filled the 2 hour-meeting at the school, while also debating directly with Filippo, have been varied.

A lot of attention was given to concrete cases of cyberbullying and their consequences, reported by the criminal attorney Cerpelloni; the point of view of the two sociologists: Gianluca Giannelli, who was present in the auditorium, and Davide Bennato, who joined the event via phone call. Both analyzed the ethics theme in the hacker and digital world; and the experience of Simone Puggiotto who underlined the importance of cybersecurity experts as well as how important it is for today’s and future companies to have strong IT security.

The interaction with students gave meaning and energy to the event, with moments of shyness among students who talked in front of the crowd, together with lighter and funnier moments filled with bloopers, puns, rounds of applauses and exhortation choruses.

We hope that the students of the Zuccante high school have treasured some of the advices that were spontaneously given during the two hours event: to believe in themselves and in their abilities, to remember that acts of cyberbullying among minors do not go unpunished and, most importantly, to believe in their dreams.
