The event deals with a book that, through it´s three directives - theory, experiences and people (scholars, worker and entrepreneurs) - intends to give "voice" to the civil dimension of economy. Starting from the conviction that the market, business and economy are also in themselves places of gratuitousness and fraternity, civil economy proposes a multi-dimensional humanism in which the market is not fought but lived. It is seen as a place that is open to the principles of reciprocity and solidarity and, therefore, capable of building the city.
This presentation of the Dictionary of Civil Economy to the city of Palermo seems important for us - a very important moment for the Economy of Commuion because this work helps build "a true science and economic praxis that make room for the principle of gift within (and not at the side) economic theory". It is very important in this moment of financial and economic crisis, to give a strong signal of change and of hope, to the city of Palermo and all of Sicily.
