Sos – School of Sustainability presents the projects of the fifth cycle at the Museo Novecento in Florence.

On Friday 26 July 2019, from 10:30 to 13:30 at the Museo Novecento in Florence, the young professionals of SOS – School of Sustainability will present the projects developed as part of their participation in the fifth cycle of the Post Graduate study program founded by the architect Mario Cucinella.

Three great challenges of our time – the development of the wellbeing of communities and territories, the fight against homelessness, the regeneration of the existing building heritage – were the focus of three ambitious projects supervised by Alessio Battistella, Andrea Rossi, Irene Giglio, Martina Ruini carried out in collaboration with institutional partners, from the world of research and industry.
The meeting is open to students, young professionals and in general to the public who wonders what concrete initiatives can be put in place to cope with climatic emergencies and the themes of regeneration of the social, economic and environmental fabric of cities and towns. of the territories.

Architecture must mobilize and take concrete actions – says Massimo Imparato, director of SOS – to help individuals, communities and businesses prepare for the unprecedented challenges related to climate change“.

2019 partner of the initiative is the Museo Novecento in Florence with which SOS – School of Sustainability, together with the studio MC A – Mario Cucinella Architects, collaborated in the creation of The Wall – Sustainable Thinking Evolution (from 12 April 2019 to xx January 2020). The installation, conceived by the director of the museum Sergio Risaliti and curated by SOS, tells the evolution of sustainable thinking seen in its interrelation with the changes that man produces in the ecosystem, and for the influences it generates in the technique, in the use of materials and production processes. The Wall is part of the Sustainable Thinking project in collaboration with the Ferragamo Foundation and the Salvatore Ferragamo Museum.

The Museo Novecento – says Sergio Risalitistrongly believes in the collaboration with SOS – School of Sustainability. With Mario Cucinella, his collaborators and the director of SOS we are planning a series of events that will focus on the theme of the circular economy and climate change underway. There is no doubt, in fact, that even in art the avant-garde is on this side“.

Paolo Cresci, Head of MEP, Arup Italia, arch. Marc Di Domenico, Director, Florence Institute of Design, prof. Laura Andreini, Architect, University of Florence.
