Language is not merely words but it also affects our way of thinking and understanding the world, an interesting topic highlighted in the CEO’s responses from a cognitive, philosophical and cultural point of view.
For instance, cultural and social transformations in politics and gender roles play an essential part in the construction and innovation of the language we all speak.

Each culture has its own peculiarity: have you ever thought about the innumerable names given to Italian Pasta?

The article shows interesting answers and ideas on the power of language as an indispensable part of our identity shared by Langpros’ CEO Matteo Ippoliti.
