We aim at providing stories that have humans as their core element, from macro-stories about our multifarious culture – including politics, society, and science – to micro-stories of an individual’s hopes, struggles, and changes.

Our stories are told by people, with their own life experiences, beliefs, and reflections of past and present events. Culturico therefore provides a multifaceted image of our world, observed and understood from different perspectives.

Although opinions are a constitutive element of our articles, our mindset remains purely scientific in its approach. Opinions must indeed be anchored in real and quantifiable core facts. Opinions should be seen as interpretations that guide a reader through the complex and otherwise impenetrable web of human relations and connections.

We believe fighting against misinformation and disinformation is our ultimate goal, as this is one of the greatest challenges for humanity in the decades to come. We do so by offering a playground for vivid exchanges and contrapositions of ideas, which are grounded by data-driven opinions and thoughts. We also fight misinformation by educating our readers through challenges and games, informing and providing tools to read and access information with a critical and investigative mindset.

Through this process, the reader is encouraged to participate in deconstructing – and reconstructing – the mosaic of images we provide, thereby shaping new and yet unfolded combinations of reality.

We see Culturico as representing our own processes of understanding and constructing our society. We therefore encourage and look forward to receiving any form of constructive criticism and are keen to discuss with others how to uncover unknown intellectual territories and identify novel strategies to deal with the modern issues related to digital information and the challenges posed by misinformation.

Or, to phrase it with the famous words of Robert Frost:

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference .

  1. Science & Environment

    – Fighting against scientific misinformation and disinformation, including misinformation about vaccines, medicines, lifestyle, or any other popular unfounded misconception about science and technology
    – Discussing the importance of communicating science to the broader public, and building trust in the work of scientists and in the scientific community
    – Proposing solutions to shorten the distance between scientific disciplines and political sciences, as well as providing ideas on how science could shape local and intergovernmental political decisions
    – Challenging the structure and functioning of the current scientific publishing system and proposing new solutions that challenge the business of scientific journals and improve scientific communication among scientists, as well as between scientists and the general public
    – Improving education worldwide by suggesting ways to enhance people’s critical thinking skills and transforming communities by building resilience to misinformation
    – Spreading awareness of climate change issues to the public and shaping a favorable future for our planet and its biodiversity

  2. Society & Culture

    – Building a society based on expertise, not only on values
    – Discussing the role of social media in shaping our society and changing how these players influence our lives
    – Disseminating culture and humanities, showing how philosophy, art, cinema, music, history, literature, aesthetics, and pop-culture can practically improve and enrichen our lives
    – Advertising ideas that change the world, whether they have a large or small impact, whether on a global or local scale, and interviewing inspiring people whose actions can be seen as examples

  3. International Relations & Politics

    – Discussing existing political models, their strengths and limitations, and proposing new solutions and approaches to improve how our society is shaped
    – Understanding the implications of interstate relations for our lives and proposing ideas to improve cooperation between people of different cultures, between governments, and between public institutions and private enterprises
    – Proposing and promoting the emergence of intergovernmental bodies that orchestrate and regulate science and research as they already exist for commerce, culture, and other disciplines.

R RCulturico provides stories that have people as the core element, with topics ranging from politics, to society and science. Opinions are a constitutive element of Culturico’s articles, although the team’s mindset remains purely scientific in its approach. 

The logotypes, with their graphical elements, have been designed to highlight the aforementioned aspects. The fonts Sans Serif or Neutra Display Titling are chosen to indicate accuracy and clarity, as with Culturico‘s subject matters. The speech bubble, like in cartoons, is an integral graphical element of the logotypes and has the purpose of indicating the strength of dialogue and plurality of opinions. The yellow background of the balloon is intended to instil positivity and optimism. The different colours of the logotypes represent the different languages, the different political, scientific and cultural environments of each individual – yet intermixed – human population.
