Education, study, we all know, is a seasonal activity, Google also shows it, with searches for keywords related to the school: the hot months are October and November, January and then from March to May, with a soaring at the end of August between vacation and duties.
Learning instead, we experience it continuously, especially outside the school walls, is a constant activity of our human nature: history teaches us that we learn (and understand concepts) only for pure pleasure or necessity, not for duty . Certainly not memorizing, but through direct experience. Learning comes from the language, thought, written, spoken; made of symbols: letters and numbers. Reading, writing and accounting are the basis of all learning. Isn't it a fashionable concept? Knowledge has always been the result of a long journey made of curiosity and passion: not easy, not simple. An individual and collective journey together.

Chiara Burberi

Born, raised and "rude" in Milan since 1967.
Everyone knows a different Chiara: professor at Bocconi, consultant at McKinsey, manager at Unicredit, now CEO of, "Italy's largest mathematics gym", a digital teaching platform dedicated to STEM subjects (Science, Technology , Engineering, Mathematics) or rather STEAM (STEM with Art), which rethinks the way of teaching and learning.
He also wrote a book, "Le ragazze con il pallino per la matematica" with Luisa Pronzato, to show that mathematics is a sport for everyone.
