Hey there! Welcome! I am Valerio Di Fonzo and this is my website Global Polis.
The name Global Polis is inspired by two concepts: globalization and the Greek term polis, which means city. Independently by what we desire, there is no doubt that we live in a globalized world, and the spread of technology made it more like a city: a huge city, a Global Polis.
I do believe knowledge and information increase comprehension, respect and peace among people. Thus, I think knowledge should be free to be shared; I think knowledge should be free to circulate in all the possible ways.
Then, here you will find information about politics, economics, anthropology, sociology and much more. I do believe that both knowledge and information are vehicles for a respectful and peaceful Global Polis. Enjoy!
Remember your humanity and forget the rest.Albert Einstein
I’m Valerio Di Fonzo, founder and author of Globalpolis.org
. I have always had interest in political theory, for this reason I obtained a bachelor and master’s degree in International Relations and Diplomatic Affairs at the University of Bologna, with a thesis on the origins and effects of liberation theology in Brazil, Argentina, and Nicaragua. Later, I moved to the United States to obtain a Master’s degree in Public Administration at the University of New Mexico. My research interests focus on inequality and its forms: income inequality, health inequality, race inequality and much more. In addition, I have a genuine passion for all the political, economic and social issues. I am also interested in social democracy, socialism, and social ecology, their dynamics and connections. Finally, just to make the life more fun I enjoy doing websites for any type of project. In fact, you can also find me on vdifonzo.com
