Prodi has enjoyed a successful academic and political career at national and international levels. His groundbreaking industrial economic research has paved the way to a pre-internet networking behavior. In politics his vision of cooperation among different cultural backgrounds has become a benchmark not only for Italy but for other countries facing conflict and has given new hope to neglected layers of human society. This expertise has been typical of his political action. He has shown great attention to the growing spread between those who have and those who have not, and has enjoyed success in the peacemaking and reconciliation processes.
