Stefano Bartolini

Professor of Happiness Economics and Political Economy at the University of Siena


Stefano Bartolini is Professor of Economics of Happiness and of Political Economy at the University of Siena. He authored several articles published on prestigious academic reviews and popular science essays, including the Manifesto for Happiness - published in 5 languages. He collaborated with the Oecd, the World Bank and the International Panel on Social Progress. His research starts from the observation that the current economic and social order seems unsustainable from at least three points of view: the degradation of the natural environment, of interpersonal relationships and of human well-being. The crucial questions motivating his activity are: why does this happen? And most importantly: is it possible to reconcile a better quality of our environment, relationships and well-being with economic prosperity?
