My Place in the World 2022

Curiosity is the true pleasure of the mind

Thomas Hobbes (English philosopher, 1588 – 1679)


Many scientific and geographical discoveries have been the result of curiosity, which has driven one to delve into what seemed insignificant details or to look with other eyes at discoveries made in other fields.

Curious minds work by assonance, they do not stop at the first difficulties, they dig, circumnavigate, fly over obstacles and often find what they are looking for or something else.

Curious minds are tenacious in looking at things they do not know and that others do not see, in re-examining and asking questions, in opening cracks where there were none before to look inside and imagine what lies outside and beyond.

Curious minds do not content themselves with filling holes but widen them.

Curious minds do not stop at the first difficulties.

Through the 7th edition of the festival “My Place in the World 2022”, the Museum of Saving, in collaboration with the Egyptian Museum, the Lavazza Museum and the MU-CH Chemistry Museum are offering secondary school students the testimony of those who made curiosity an engine of knowledge and of personal and professional growth.

Do not put obstacles in the way of curiosity, decide what you want to know and then choose the best way to do it.

Being curious is an invitation to everyone. We all have the right to be curious.
