At the beginning of the 10th century, historic Milanese organisations revealed their very important role in the diffusion of innovation and in the development and growth of the Italian economy. People like Carlo Cattaneo, Alessandro Mazzucotelli, Giacomo Feltrinelli, Eugenio Torelli Viollier, Bruno Munari and Gio Ponti, who were part of these entities, were really protagonists of their era, also contributing towards the formation of important human capital.
In 2008, the organisations, the Circolo Filologico Milanese (Milanese Philological Circle), the Ente Morale Feltrinelli per l’Incremento della Istruzione Tecnica (Moral Organisation for the Growth of Tecnical Instruction), the Fondazione Giovanni e Irene Cova (Giovanni and Irene Cova Foundation), the Scuola Superiore d’Arte Applicata all’Industria del Castello Sforzesco (Castello Sforzesco Institute of Higher Learning for Arts Applied to Industry), the Società d’Incoraggiamento d’Arti e Mestieri (Society for the Encouragement of Arts and Trades) and the Società Umanitaria (Humanitarian Society) all signed a protocol of understanding to create a network of reciprocal collaboration.
The goals of this partnership are achieved through the popularisation of the activities carried out by the organisations. These goals include the valorisation and the promotion of local secondary training, orientation towards work and insertion in the social network, as well as meeting the necessity to adapt to the demands of the job market in continuous change. Dialogue with companies, category associations and unions, therefore proves itself fundamental for performing investigations in the job market and identifying new figures.
