To produce new thoughts, we need new limits.

We no longer have the limits we once had.
Or, at least, we no longer have the idea of the limit created to be overcome, of development with no limits, the idea of having unlimited resources. The limits of the planet are very real. Exceeding these limits means putting our planet seriously at risk, as well as our survival. Loss of biodiversity and climate change are only a few of the indicators that are clearly showing us how far we have overstepped the limit.
We need to change course. Embrace limits and transform them into opportunities.
This is why, in this sixth edition of Innesti, we wanted to look at the idea of limits as a necessary, favourable condition for change.
Through the voices and contributions in this edition, we have explored limits that have led us across new paths and vast panoramas.
In the society of progress and unrestrained consumerism, the word limit had negative connotations, but today it appears in a new form: the possibility of gaining the awareness that we have only one planet, only one life, and therefore only one opportunity.
The stories we have told have a common thread: that of changing the culture of limits. To produce new thoughts, we need new limits. Whether these are personal choices, such as those relating to eating habits or mobility, or company projects and ideas to improve accessibility, or ways to face the change or save something that risks being lost - let's take note - there is always a limit to stimulate creative thinking, art, a solution or a challenge.
