  • The portrayal of harassment in the performing arts: Angela Calia, lecturer and researcher at the Accademia Dimitri, will offer a unique insight into the way in which the performing arts can contribute to understanding and raising awareness on the issue.

  • Round Table: A key moment of the event will be the round table, moderated by RSI journalist Cinzia Rigamonti, featuring experts of the calibre of Nora Jardini Croci-Torti, lawyer and Co-Director of the Equi-Lab Association, Roberta Di Pasquale, lecturer and researcher in dynamic psychology at the University of Bergamo, and Mathieu Horeau, PhD and lecturer-researcher at the Accademia Dimitri.
