Enrica Arena is CEO and Co-founder of Orange Fiber, the first brand in the world to produce sustainable fabrics from the by-products of the juice of citrus fruits. After taking her degree in International Cooperation for Development and Communication, she accrued different experiences in the non-profit communication and project management field for the Alessandrina Library and UNDP-Egypt. And it was thus that she discovered a passion for social entrepreneurial activity as a driver of growth and development, which has always been the beacon that guides her and that has led her today to handle Orange Fiber’s project management, communication, marketing and fund-raising.

Roberto Battiston, born in Trento in 1956, took his Physics degree from the Scuola Normale in Pisa and then went on to receive his doctorate at the University of Paris IX, Orsay. He has been a full professor of Experimental Physics at the Department of Physics of the University of Trento since 1992. He has coordinated highly complex scientific projects in the field of physics on the accelerators at CERN, at Stanford and in space. He chaired the Italian Space Agency (ASI) from 2014 to 2018, representing Italy in the Italian, European and international space contexts. Author of over 460 articles published in international magazines, he has been involved in research projects in the experimental physics of fundamental interactions sector for more than 35 years. He has devoted himself to writing popular scientific essays since 2012. His latest publication – L’alfabeto della natura. La lezione della scienza per interpretare la realtà (The Alphabet of Nature. Lessons from Science for Reading the World Around Us) – reflects on the importance of welcoming science into public debate in order to cope with the enormous challenge the environmental question poses.
