“Vito Di Bari engineers dreams. Concrete dreams, based on solid facts.”
Kenneth Arrow, Nobel Prize for Economics
"Vito Di Bari's vision of the future is radically different from the message espoused by many of his contemporaries. Rather than focusing on the challenges that the future and the inevitability of change present, he presents a practical framework for how to address the opportunities that are the natural by-product of such occurrences."
Marco D. Cuono, Executive Director and Founder at Interacel
“Di Bari’s scheme of digital innovation strikes me as remarkable because it is so aligned with the concept of convergence pursued by individual European countries”
Lawrence Klein, Nobel Prize for Economics
"Vito Di Bari opened the door to his house and let us into the hall where we had a view into an amazing future, where we would find ourselves sooner or later. It was almost too fantastic to be true – but I’m sure it isn‘t. In few years it will be our new reality, the new modern times and I want indeed to part of it! Very inspiring and very motivating.”
Finn Vagner, CEO Netgroup A/S, Denmark
“Mr. DiBari presented a concise view of the future and challenged our conventional thinking. The audience left stimulated yet intrigued. If we can emulate Mr. DiBari’s thinking, MCH will be more than prepared to handle the coming challenges.”
Dr. NARENDRA Kini, CEO Miami Children Hospital
