Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] In contemporary societies new cultural phenomena of sharing, collaboration and solidarity are consolidating and multiplying with an unstoppable rhythm, and they are radically redefining the relationships between individuals and communities. The role of digital technologies and their widespread and capillary connectivity power is central and crucial in determining new anthropological, ethical, social and democratic needs and aspirations, but it is also at the origin of multiple forms of economic innovation. Next to unexplored - because previously not feasible - the possibility of reaching 'others' far away and of intervening in 'social causes' distant through the 'proximity' of virtual reality, all the dimensions of leaving, delivering and distributing to other goods, belongings and capacities - from the most personal and existential to the collective and public - are rapidly evolving together. The expression 'new philanthropy' (New Philanthropy) was born within the generation of entrepreneurs of the dot-com, the computer and digital industry, as a different and 'strategic' philanthropy, interested in, and capable of , produce and measure the impacts of well-doing. More generally, however, the term refers to the vast theoretical and social movement to rethink non-profit, liberality, solidarity and collaborative commitment.
