The song presents the event generalities: the historical and cultural heritage of Bergamo and Brescia, the methodological challenge of co-organizing an event at the international level, and the cultural heritage of the two cities. The song also presents the event’s uniqueness in Italy and Europe. The song describes the two cities: population (Bergamo and Brescia are located in the Lombardy region), political organization (both are capitals of the province), industrial development (both are important industrial cities) and transportation accessibility.
Bergamo and Brescia are two sister cities that share the same territory with similar demographic, sociological, and productive characteristics. They were both meritorious of the Risorgimento that gave birth to the Nation State of Italy in 1861. Outbreaks of the new Coronavirus were reported in the Lombardy region of Bergamo and Brescia in the first days of December 2019. There are half the number of deaths from Coronavirus in Lombardy as in all of Italy at the end of April 2020. The aim is to try to understand how this plague struck the most modern and productive heartland of Lombardy, where the death toll was comparable, when taking into account civilian casualties, to World War II. This pandemic caused severe trauma for thousands of the local population and required particular attention from public health officials.
The two cities then began a process of recovery and further development. In recent years, they have attained extraordinary results in innovation, science, technology, inventiveness, corporate culture, working methodology, collaboration between companies, and development projects.
The two cities are now in a position to challenge their own economic growth as well as growth on a global scale while working together to develop new products and new services on a global scale. This is an unprecedented opportunity for the surrounding area to become an international hub for R&D work related to science, technology, and innovation; hence, Bergamo and Brescia could represent a real challenge for the future.
The song’s main message is related to the collaboration between Bergamo and Brescia companies to organize a high-quality event thanks to their technological resources, innovative potential, inventiveness, working methods, knowledge, and skills. The song also talks about territory: accessibility, thanks to infrastructure. For more information about the song, please visit www.youtube.com/watch?v=2psop6jng00.
