The vital relationship between Europe and the East has changed a lot in recent years. The image of that distant world, over the years has gradually losing air exotic, charming and harmless that characterized once the "other" cultures, views with the Eurocentric mentality. He has now assumed the character of a competitor - or better than most competitors - increasingly dangerous and competitive in terms of economic, technological, production, sales. Last but not least comes the artistic and cultural production, which even takes the form of a new, possible future hegemony in global knowledge.
