Who we are
About LPD
 

LPD convenes some of the world’s foremost scholars, policy makers, practitioners, business leaders, public intellectuals and artists whose ideas and work have made a significant cultural or intellectual contribution to global society and the revival of the spirit of humanism for which Florence is known. They gather at Villa la Pietra, New York University´s exceptional site in Florence, to confront some of the most intractable issues of contemporary society through the creative interplay of ideas and perspectives.

LPD fosters the creation of partnerships across disciplines, cultures and institutions, as an established center in the heart of Europe attached to an American University with branches throughout the world, and contributes to the emerging global civic discourse that is at the heart of NYU’s mission as a global network university.

 

Dialogue: “a process which embraces the instructive power of alternative view points as an often inadequately appreciated but nevertheless substantial feature of the environment in which knowledge is created, extended and transmitted

-John Sexton, President, New York University
