About Value Unplugged

Friends of The Manual of Ideas join John and Oliver Mihaljevic
to unwind, strategize, and create thought-leading content

Our friend Ciccio Azzollini hosts the wonderful Value Investing Seminar from July 17-18, 2014 in Trani, Italy. In the run-up to V.I.S., from July 8-16, 2014, The Manual of Ideas is renting a villa near Naples, Italy — to recharge and team up with thought-leading investors to generate insights for our global community.

Join us (by invitation only) and come prepared to relax, learn, and share. Bring your family or arrive solo. Stay for the entire period from July 8-16 or visit with us for a day or two. At the conclusion of Value Unplugged, we will organize round-trip transportation to Ciccio’s conference in Trani (only a two-hour drive away).
