Summary: The contemporary world lives under the mark of technology. The robotic, the social network, the Internet of Things are the environment in which humanity lives. People feel as if they are in the midst of an epochal change. The need for a new vision of humanism emerges, alongside the need to develop the capacity for making technology a true resource for the development of humanity. The thinking of Romano Guardini is very relevant even today. Guardini helps us to understand technical power and the relation between nature and culture. He asserts the centrality of the human person and he shows the human qualities needed to be able to live in a time like this. This paper examines the questions of contemporary technology, comparing them with the answers found in the work of Guardini. Its main focus is on the anthropological changes produced by ICT and on Romano Guardini’s suggestions as to how to govern the power of technology.
