The national convention REbuild (Riva del Garda, November 26-27) tackled the subject of sustainable management and upgrading of properties, a major scope in the Italian industry outline and a new priority for the country – as stated by Gianluca Salvatori, president of Progetto Manifattura and co-author of the convention- an economic priority, not just ethical and cultural.
Consistently with these concepts, the REbuild Prize was given to:
