Amulets and talismans originated in primordial era, perhaps even before a real language, are rooted in every culture and accompany human life in the technological and digital 2.0 era, expressing the universality of human nature. 

In today's multifunctional society, we easily adapt our behaviour to technological science, but we are reluctant to change stereotypes, prejudices and superstitions from the past. This behaviour reveals the fears, stress, anxiety and turmoil that characterise this particular time of economic crisis and social uncertainty.
