  • International Design – Workshop/Competition
    Rhegion United Nations 2020-2030

Rhegion UN 2020-2030 intends to highlight the importance of cultural change that must be made in order to pursue the philosophy of sustainable development specified by the UN in 2015, participating in the construction of „cultured technology“ mentioned since 1991 by Romano del Nord.


That is to build a new civitas, with roots in history and sustainable for the future, where the Comunitas can live with good quality of life and in harmony with nature, as well highlighted in the Encyclical Letter Laudato Sii of the Holy Father Francis on the Care of Common House focused on integrated ecology. The aspects linked to anthropological questions will not be secondary, but examples of good local, national and international practices will also be relevant.

The WORKSHOP is an experimentation of recovery and redevelopment based on the UN 2020 – 2030 objectives of a territory with a strong natural value and rich in historical evidences such as the Metropolitan Area of Reggio Calabria.
