The post pandemic and the unknowns of 2021

Livio Gigliuto, Vice President and Head of Marketing Management at Istituto Piepoli, interviewed by Maria Rosa Alaggio on how to build our tomorrow in the post-pandemic world.

Pandemic emergencies, climate change, pollution, digitalisation, increase in social inequalities. These are just some of the items that refer to the risks analyzed by the Global Risk Report, produced by the World Economic Forum in collaboration with Marsh McLennan, SK Group and Zurich.
The next ten years will be characterized by fears of infectious diseases, a normal consequence of this time, of growing social, economic and industrial gaps, of information security. A complexity that must be faced without losing sight of a priority to be followed between now and 2050: climate neutrality.
It is therefore necessary to manage strategies, investments and resources to promote renewable energy by implementing initiatives that involve all sectors of the Green Economy, construction, energy or infrastructure, operating on the basis of a more sustainable vision of our future, of growth for companies and for the whole system. For this reason, not only the areas apparently closest to “green development” are called to move in this effort, but also all businesses and citizens, with a view to sensitivity, cohesion and global cooperation. Thanks to this approach it will be possible to really contribute to the solution of the great problems of our time.
The Dossier of this number of Insurance Review, entitled “The unknowns of 2021”, highlights how much the crisis will still accompany us for a long time, and how essential it is to provide answers on the identity that Italy wants to assume for the future, as well as on the urgency of courageously carrying out concrete actions to relaunch the country, its civil, economic and cultural system.
As it is well known, new high-impact projects are needed, with urgent investments in the health sector, justice, in the system of physical and digital infrastructures, training and inclusion.
The thought of Livio Gigliuto, Vice President and Marketing Managerat Istituto Piepoli, however, also highlights another priority that should not be underestimated: the ability to reassure citizens by providing instructions, messages, paths on how to build our post-pandemic tomorrow. Before even thinking about an “economic recovery plan”, it is therefore essential to be able to propose a “psychological reconnection plan”, made up of solutions to ensure greater protection, security and stability.
