Cortona Friends

We are dedicated to our mission of fostering of a new generation of world leaders in this critical period of worldwide political, moral and environmental instability.


Cortona Week

Cortona Week is an interdisciplinary residence where graduate students and young managers from all over the world and from all disciplines are “mixed” (in addition to several critical scientists) , with artists, musicians, spiritual leaders, poets, professionals in medicine and psychology, politicians.

The aim, with the help of world known professionals and even visionaries, is to open up the horizon of the participants to the values of ecology, ethics, tolerance, internal introspection- and to the actual new frontiers of science, literature, art, economy – the full display of human experience – where life becomes a system view of interacting parts – and not an addition of single isolated domains.

We work together in round table discussions, lectures and with experiential workshops, where the participants can paint, do sculpture or music, meditation, theatre… choosing by themselves which aspects of life are more important for their own life equilibrium.
