H Factor. Ideas and people that are going to change the world.
Cosimo Palmisano, Jeroen De Wit, Chiara Montanari, Sarah Jane Pell, Gianluigi Parrotto, Andrea Postiglione & Paolo De Nadai
To be an hero is not necessary to have superpowers. Having a goal and pursuing it with all the might often counts more than anything else. According to American psychologists Philip Zimbardo, Kathy Blau and Zeno Franco, the Heroes of our time have 5 distinctive features: Many of the heroes are independent; they represent danger or self-sacrifice; their work involves the acceptance of risk and potential consequences; their work is carried out in support of others or an idea greater than themselves; and many times their ideas are against the tide. Let us be inspired by the story of exceptional men and women who, with determination, generosity and a touch of madness are changing their lives and the lives of mankind. * Opening "Virality Factor" by Paolo De Nadai, ScuolaZoo.
