The pandemic has traced a great rift between a before and an after, it has marked a watershed between a world that we thought we were controlling and a new one with a very uncertain profile. This is why Editori Laterza asked fifty scholars to analyze the transformations underway following the Covid emergency and the lockdown, to describe possible scenarios and offer indications for better crisis management. The result is a book, to be released in October, and entitled The world after the end of the world , but the novelty lies in the fact that the book is a point of arrival for a construction site that will be kept open in the coming months.
The publishing house proposes itself as a collective intellectual who helps readers to find new keys to interpreting a present so full of changes and every week will publish on the websites and social channels of Editori Laterza and Ansa, media partners of the initiative, video dialogues related to the book which will feature the authors of the individual contributions.
The first appointment on Friday 10 July at 11.00 with a conversation between Andrea Boitani, Sabino Cassese, Marta Dassù, coordinated by Giuseppe Laterza on the theme: After the pandemic: more or less globalization?

Furthermore, in-depth podcasts will be available on the most common online platforms. We start with Massimo Florio, Enrico Letta and Chiara Saraceno on the theme of Europe and Welfare in the light of what has happened in recent months.

It is an innovative way of thinking about editorial work. The book, the authors remain at the center of our projects but change the languages and tools to spread their ideas, their doubts and their proposals. Perhaps this is already a world principle after the end of the world.
