Luigino Bruni, professor of economics at Libera Università Maria Ss. Assunta (LUMSA) in Rome, Italy, investigates the historical and philosophical foundations of economic thought, with a focus on the interpersonal dimension. With others, he rediscovered the Italian tradition of civil economy and cofounded the Scuola di Economia Civile (School of Civil Economy), to reenvision economic exchange through sociality, relational goods, and the common good.
