MEMO: il nuovo romanzo di Alberto Zavatta

COMUNICATO STAMPA

Milano, 07 giugno 2022

 

“MEMO: UN’INDIMENTICABILE STORIA DI ALZHEIMER”, IL NUOVO ROMANZO DI ALBERTO ZAVATTA.

Come sopravvivere all’Alzheimer? Cosa rimane della vita, dell’amore, della normalità quando si resta soli?

 

La ricerca di una risposta a questi temi ha ispirato il nuovo romanzo di Alberto Zavatta, “MEMO: un’indimenticabile storia di Alzheimer”, distribuito sulla piattaforma Kindle Direct Publishing/Amazon in formato digitale e cartaceo (hard cover o paperback) per il mercato italiano. L’edizione in lingua inglese sarà presto disponibile sul mercato internazionale.

 

L’autore esplora la dimensione della malattia di Alzheimer con eleganza e delicatezza, grazie a una scrittura spesso ‘per immagini’ che evoca la sofferenza senza mai drammatizzarla.

 

MEMO ripercorre la storia di un uomo oramai ottantenne che incontra la sua vera solitudine, e esplora per la prima volta la sua dimensione più intima attraverso la graduale e inarrestabile perdita di memoria della moglie. Il personaggio dell’uomo assume nel corso degli eventi una sua consistenza ‘per sottrazione’, ovvero attraverso il riconoscimento del non compiuto, del non compreso, dell’opportunità mancata.

 

La diagnosi di Alzheimer è il primo passo verso una nuova consapevolezza e conduce all’analisi di una vita narrata per momenti, per sprazzi, per evocazioni, in una sorta di flusso di coscienza in cui non ci sono più né nomi né luoghi. Rimossi, non più utili. Anche il tempo diventa una dimensione fluida, un incastro elastico che è un pretesto per collocare una vicenda che non sempre ha una cronologia sequenziale, canonica. Il silenzio amplifica la memoria che, invece, in lui permane, presente e cruda.

Leadership: intuizione, etica e behavior.

LEADERSHIP: INTUIZIONE, ETICA E BEHAVIOR.

di Alberto Zavatta

Oggi più che mai, parlare di leadership significa entrare in un territorio in cui etica e comportamento – behavior – sono dimensioni fondative. La riflessione non può essere condotta in modo univoco: nel senso che non sarebbe attuale né sostenibile parlare di un modello unico di leadership di riferimento.

 

Modelli e Cultura 

Un modello occidentale di leadership, quale che sia, può non funzionare efficacemente nei paesi in via di sviluppo. Ugualmente, la leadership assume una configurazione profondamente diversa se osservata in una multinazionale a Chicago o in un gruppo di giovani donne afghane che cercano di affermare primariamente una identità di genere, tale da sdoganare poi una potenzialità di “leadership al femminile”. Cito l’Afghanistan per la mia esperienza diretta sui temi di International Development, ma sappiamo che la materia attiene a innumerevoli altri contesti.

Non trascurabili, infine, sono tutti i casi in cui il leader acquisisce fattezze frutto di imitazione di modelli culturali profondamente diversi da quelli del paese in cui agisce. Chi guida deve tenere in necessaria considerazione il contesto culturale in cui è immerso, evitando di nuocere alla comunità e di tradire il significato profondo della leadership stessa: guidance come funzione etica preposta a presiedere ad una crescita collettiva, consapevole e attenta ai bisogni delle nuove generazioni. Leadership è responsabilità nel fare bene, per lasciare a chi verrà poi (è il tema della “legacy”).

 

Ascolto e adattività

Abbiamo costruito nell’immaginario collettivo un concetto di leadership basato su quello che definirei un pregiudizio supponente: il leader è necessariamente un vincente. Abbiamo così fatto coincidere “leadership” con una dimensione egoica e auto-riferita di un individuo capace di assommare in sé una serie di elementi simbolici esteriori spendibili presso il pubblico. Ma questa dimensione è destinata a divenire obsoleta.

Personalmente, scorgo le caratteristiche della leadership oggi in “un individuo in ascolto”. Da una condizione di partenza in cui il leader aspira ad attuare ogni strategia possibile per consolidare potere e notorietà (someone “to be known”), si transita progressivamente alla costruzione di una relazione di reciprocità, di serio lavoro e di fiducia con la propria audience (someone “to be trusted”). Il vero leader assimila, impara, recepisce e muta in modo adattivo rispetto al contesto di riferimento e all’input che da esso proviene.

Il leader assurge, così, a dimensione individuale capace di interpretare il cambiamento e di riversare nella collettività un messaggio, un comportamento, un approccio (al pensiero o al fare) accessibile ai più. Ritengo non si possa parlare di leadership laddove questa non diventi un “bene partecipato” da una collegialità di individui. Il leader non è più solo voce per sé, ma è voce che racconta la storia di molti. Il leader non è più “estraneo da noi”, ma lo riconosciamo perché parte della nostra identità.

 

Osservazione e conoscenza autentica

La leadership si forma grazie alla capacità di saper dialogare e di ritrovare il contatto con una dimensione interiore spesso perduta. Siamo protagonisti di un processo evolutivo dove la nostra razionalità è stata resa, gradualmente, sempre più distante dall’emozione. Il progressivo distacco, e il conseguente non dialogo, tra la parte razionale e la parte emozionale-sensoriale ha condotto ad una compressione della sfera creativa.

È capace di leadership (e ne è anche tutore) chi ha il talento dell’osservazione, dell’elaborazione critica e della ridefinizione di processi e percorsi pur consolidati dall’uso o dalla certezza dell’abitudine. Il leader promuove una dinamica originale e unica in cui il pensiero e l’agire si alimentano di parole, immagini, segni, combinazioni, associazioni, suoni, odori, gusti.

La sfera sensoriale delle molteplici manifestazioni dell’esistenza può essere compresa solo ed esclusivamente se si ristabilisce appieno la stretta relazione tra la dimensione razionale ed emozionale. Il vero potere sta quindi nell’intuizione.

Pensiamo alla figura del leader nelle civiltà del passato, quelle che portano con sé una componente ancestrale cui noi tuttora apparteniamo, sebbene appaia oggi dimenticata. Il leader è il saggio. Il saggio è colui che conosce. Eppure, la conoscenza in quanto tale si pone già su un piano minore rispetto alla saggezza. Nella società contemporanea, la conoscenza è stata sostituita dai dati. Dati che sono spesso frammentari: offrono informazioni, ma non offrono necessariamente risposte. E le risposte, pur offerte, talora non sono sufficientemente critiche (nell’accezione del “giudizio”) al punto di saper generare saggezza.

Occorre, quindi, sapersi riconnettere.

 

Inner-self e intimità

Usciamo, per un attimo, dal linguaggio oramai quotidiano dove il termine “connessione” ha assunto una prevalente sfumatura tecnologica, tornando a riappropriarci del significato originario.  Il nostro inner-self recupera la forma del dialogo con l’inner-self di chi è “altro da noi”. Certo, questo avviene anche attraverso la tecnologia, ma non solo attraverso di essa. Leadership è recupero di un linguaggio perduto che tocca un piano di “intimità” verso l’altro e che parla di “fiducia”.

Possiamo così sovvertire positivamente la credenza per cui il leader è il vincente per antonomasia. Da questa nuova prospettiva di osservazione, leader è chi, avendo nutrito nel tempo una autentica dimensione empatica, arriva a gestire anche la sconfitta. Solo una presa di coscienza sincera forma la leadership di domani: persone capaci di condurre la vera trasformazione e di tenere sempre vivo il senso dello stupore.

Marghoob – The true essence of Beauty  

Alberto Zavatta – Inspiring the next you is very proud to announce the launch in Afghanistan of MARGHOOB – The true essence of Beauty, a new brand and line of products, results of Alberto’s advisory to the US Agency for International Development (USAID) and to DAI – Women in the Economy. Alberto’s collaboration, as strategic communication and branding consultant, with USAID/DAI project has started in March 2019.

For more info: USAID and DAI Women in the Economy

 

MARGHOOB – The true essence of Beauty  

Many of the Afghan women who participate in the creation of the products under the brand MARGHOOB – The true essence of Beauty are women who have had difficult life experiences: exploitation, slavery, abuse, forced drug use for the purpose of submission. Work has become an opportunity for rehabilitation for these women and has given them a new sense of life.

MARGHOOB – The true essence of Beauty is brand created with and for PESHRAFT ZANAN – which translated means “Women Empowerment” – a private company owned by Ms Marghuba SAFI and based in Kabul. The Company is active in the production of natural organic skin care products: soaps, cosmetic creams , body-butter, etc.

The role and personality of Ms Marghuba SAFI is definitely a key factor for the identity, success and development of this productive reality. Ms Safi is a serious and determined woman strongly committed to work and passionate, a profound ethical sense in managing the company, a sincere motivation in supporting the Afghan women’s cause through concrete actions in which respect and work values are central.

Learn more about the experience of Ms Safi: watch Alberto’s Interview with Ms Safi.

PESHRAFT ZANAN places the work of women at the very center of its identity and positioning: the goal of providing women with job opportunities, thus strengthening their economic and social power, is a foundational principle. The team consists of 20 people, including managers, workers in various sectors of the company and farmers who offer the fruits of their land to the productions of MARGHOOB – The true essence of Beauty.  At the moment the reference market is only the national one, although the possibility of accessing new markets is in the company’s objectives.

Logo

The new brand name  MARGHOOB is intended to communicate and to market the values and products of the company. It means desired, desirable, pleasant, coveted, agreeable, aimable, beautiful, lovely. A name that is fully in line with the market sector: appealing, feminine, delicate. Not last, a name that is also close to the name of the founder and owner of the company (Marghuba > Marghoob).

MARGHOOB – The true essence of Beauty as a whole with the new pay-off, reinforces the message of trust and authenticity.

 

Brand positioning

MARGHOOB is the first Afghan brand with a proven expertise in the beauty of the skin.

The combination of excellent quality ingredients – completely organic and 100% natural – and the cold craft method, which preserves the active principles of the botanicals, distinguish the “style of making” of MARGHOOB and the uniqueness of its soaps.

A name to trust, able to always provide specific soutions for each type of skin.

Yours too.

 

Line of products and key factors

MARGHOOB’s soaps are made from the unique encounter of natural oils (olive, coconut, almond, sunflower, corn, palm, beeswax) and top quality botanical products (cumin, saffron, lavender, turmeric, aloe vera, cucumber, marigold, rose). The combination of these ingredients, the attention to the needs of the skin, the seriousness in offering effective solutions for the problems of beauty and skin health are at the heart of MARGHOOB, the very first beauty brand of Afghanistan.

The new communication and branding strategy suggested by Alberto Zavatta reorganised the entire line of products and suggested a clear and precise system, which was subsequently taken up by the packaging structure. It was necessary to communicate the primary benefit of each product-ingredient: the solution to the skin problem; hence the secondary benefit: the action that the ingredient performs on a general level. The new logo, simple and modern, conveys elegance and quality. The packaging is contemporary, functional, strongly visual: it uses impactful colors, images and icons in order to communicate an original style and effective performance.

The packaging design project was developed in collaboration with the creative agency Euroart93.

Positioning, Brand System and Tools

The research led to the identification of the fundamental guidelines on the brand and projects presentation through the definition of foundational keywords and a clear “tone of voice” that could be immediately associated to the positioning of the new brand Alpina SpA.

The most appropriate ways to find an innovative and original communication balance combining the peculiar qualities of the services offered with a more emotional and appealing dimension (aesthetic-emotional marketing) were evaluated. In fact, creating an ideal brand and product narrative becomes a potential distinctive brand engagement tool.

The strategic output defined the foundations for: the realisation of the new international pay-off “Engineering at its peak since 1954” (creative wording: Alpina > Alps > Mountains > Peak); the new logo design, conceived as an evolution of a former vintage logo of the 70s; a new copywriting style; a complete renovation of the website; a social media plan for Linkedin, including dedicated ADV campaigns; a contents’ lay-out for the corporate brochure, then developed internally by Alpina’s Graphic Design Team.

Alpina is one of the oldest engineering company, established in Milan in 1954. Formerly owned by the holding companies La Centrale Finanziaria S.p.A. and Bastogi S.p.A., since 1989 it is owned by the professionals who work there.
