What exactly is an “Italic”? Most people believe they know what “Italian” means, but “Italic” is perhaps unfamiliar to many at least in the traditional sense of the word.

In order to better understand this newly coined term, i-Italy invited Piero Bassetti (politician, entrepreneur) and Fred Plotkin (an expert on opera and all things Italian) to La Casa di i-Italy to flush out the idea of an Italic and how Italics are becoming increasingly important in the world.
