The very first conference promoted by the I.S.E.O. Institute was held on the 17th and the 18th of October 1998 at Abbazia Olivetana, a stunning ancient abbey near Brescia.

The two days meeting was focused on “How to beat Unemployment in Europe” and it featured some of the most influential experts in the field. First of all Franco Modigliani, founder of the I.S.E.O. Institute, who decided to launch his “Manifesto against unemployment” worldwide right from the conference. The “Manifesto” (downloadable at the bottom of this page) was written together with Jean Paul Fitoussi, Beniamino Moro, Dennis Snower, Robert Solow, Alfred Steinherr and Paolo Sylos Labini.

Due to a sudden illness, Modigliani had to join the meeting videoconferencing from the USA. However, the conference reached an incredible success: about 200 delegates came to Rodengo Saiano, including journalists from all over the world. Interviews, reports and contents of the conference had the chance to travel around the world thanks to an incredible mass media coverage.
