Yesterday at the Altice Forum Braga, the first edition of “Success Full Thought” an initiative that resulted from a partnership between the Catholic University of Braga, the Braga Municipality and Idioteque, with the support of the Spring and STD Groups. Full house, a guest of the world’s first line of thought – Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi, President of the Pontifical Council for Culture in the Vatican – very interesting opening speeches by the Mayor of Braga and the Rector of the Catholic University, a very funny video with the children of the Educational Complex of the College of the Caldinhas, agitators of 8 nationalities and professional backgrounds and also of different creeds and religious denominations, that we all knew to question and the participation of Sinfonietta of Braga. All of this centered on one question: to what extent can Thinking bridge cultures, and peoples, and in the case of this first edition, to what extent Faith Thought can do it. We thank all those involved and those present.
