Valentino Zurloni , Dr.

Dr. Valentino Zurloni is an assistant professor, currently affiliated with the Centre for Studies in Communication Sciences, at the Department of Human Sciences for Education at the University of Milano-Bicocca. His expertise is tied to the psychology of culture, meant as a conceptual horizon of understanding of communication and emotional processes. This interest has resulted in the implementation and validation of educational protocols for encourage multicultural membership, within the theoretical paradigm of multicultural mind as the ability to know and to follow patterns of different cultures. Specifically, this theoretical paradigm has been applied in the project “Fostering the multicultural mind “, which analyses the conditions underlying the comparability of the models and the cultural categories of Chinese and Italian pupils.
