“When we survey our lives and endeavors we soon observe that almost the whole of our actions and desires are bound up with the existence of other human beings. We see that our whole nature resembles that of the social animals.

We eat food that others have grown, wear clothes that others have made, live in houses that others have built. The greater part of our knowledge and beliefs has been communicated to us by other people through the medium of a language which others have created.
Without language our mental capacities would be poor indeed, comparable to those of the higher animals; we have, therefore, to admit that we owe our principal advantage over the beasts to the fact of living in human society.
The individual, if left alone from birth would remain primitive and beast-like in his thoughts and feelings to a degree that we can hardly conceive. The individual is what he is and has the significance that he has not so much in virtue of his individuality, but rather as a member of a great human society, which directs his material and spiritual existence from
the cradle to the grave.”
“I think it would be very interesting to know the opinion a man who has dedicated his entire life to perfecting and throwing light on principles, has about his science. The way in which he views the post and present in his particular field may strongly depend on what he strives to obtain from the future and on what he hopes to obtain from the present."

Albert Einstein

Finally, after two years of video call meetings due to pandemic, we can meet in person.
The next appointment will be: the Aluminium Exhibition Düsseldorf 27-29 September 2022, the next international technical seminar “Extrufinishing 2022” from 22 to 24 September 2022 at the Spezzano Castle, Modena, and finally the 12th edition of Aluminium Two Thousand World Congress 2023, scheduled for 19-23 September in Modena-Rome, will be a few of not-to-be-missed and most important events for the Aluminium Extrusion and Finishing industries, after 2 years of online events or no events at all due to the pandemic.
These new important opportunities will represent not just meeting points between technicians, experts and business men, but they are also opportunities to think about the past, the present and the future.



Walter Dalla Barba,
Editor and Chairman of the Aluminium Two Thousand World Congress 2023 and Alusurface 2022
