“Venice, capital of the humanist renaissance in harmony with the Vivant”

Hélène Molinari

The emergence of a new consciousness

For an environmentally sustainable, socially equitable and economically viable society , SUMus embraces Gandhi's motto: "Be the change you wish to see in the world".


SUMus will promote the emergence of a Human consciousness enlightened by knowledge for a respectful and sustainable future.

SUMus wished to challenge the Venetians on their future; offering them a platform to start writing a possible future in which they can become actors of their own destiny.

The founding SUMus film, Venezia, il faro del mondo and the portraits surrounding it, will be screened during the summer on the Venetian campi (squares), on church facades, during la Mostra, in art galleries and even among citizens.... in a spirit of conviviality and sharing... promoting the new SUMus community in the hope that a future Venetian Sumus will emerge with involved and motivated participants ready to become actors of a better world.
