Introduction: Meritocracy has its roots in the combination of the Latin word mereo “earn” and the ancient Greek kratos meaning “power”. It is a political philosophy which holds that power should be vested in individuals according to merit. “meritocracy” should be the pillar of a good nation, of a good organization. Where does meritocracy lie? It is very hard to sense, touch and see. Where can it be found? I think meritocracy is found when the person next to you is the person that deserves that position, the right person for your organization. Always. I’m glad to be italian. I love my country. But often, I have experienced in my short life, it’s very hard to find meritocracy in Italy: I’m going to explain my story. How an italian guy is promoting “meritocracy” in his country.
