Who we are

Founded in 1993 as a journalistic and editorial agency, Zadig is today formed by a core group of specialists, around which operates a network of journalists, physician, researchers, computer scientists, creatives and innovators specialized in medicine, health, science and environment.

Who's Zadig?

Zadig is the protagonist of a philosophical tale by Voltaire. Zadig represents, for the French philosopher, the rational and judicious thought that distinguishes the right and decent man, who is not afraid to clash with the powerful to defend his principles. Zadig, thanks to his sagacity and spirit of observation, typical of serendipity and abduction, not only makes unexpected discoveries, as often happens in science, but also manages to escape a death sentence. Zadig "was satisfied with the style of reason", writes Voltaire: the style of reason is for us an indication of both value and method, form and substance.

Our values, our style

Critical and thoughtful thinking ("slow"), reason open to dialogue, intellectual independence, collective interest and participation, balanced and quality information: these are the values in which we all recognize ourselves. From Voltaire's work we take not only the name of the protagonist and his motto, but also the style of the author, sober, never shouted, sometimes ironic but always rich in quality content. The style of reason is not the style that imposes itself by raising its voice, nor is it a cold and detached style; it is the style that affirms itself starting from listening to the need and the rational (and reasonable) search for effective and "right" (sustainable) solutions.

Our objectives

Particularly active in the fields of medicine, public health and science, Zadig aims to provide critical and correct information, and to experiment with new forms of communication and training, with a special focus on digital.

Our aim is to offer institutions, health professionals, citizens and researchers, services and tools to disseminate quality information, to educate and train in scientific culture, to promote initiatives in the health field, to innovate and participate as protagonists in the change in health, science and environment.
