The initiative is promoted by Ordine Architetti P.P.C. Napoli (the Order of Architects of Naples) and curated by architect Arianna Callocchia. The purpose of the meeting is to present the role and importance of sustainable architecture in Finland to establish a dialogue between Italian and Finnish realities.

“To fight climate change, Helsinki is striving to become a carbon neutral city. For this reason, many zero carbon buildings are being built in Helsinki. Moreover, the theme of architectural recovery and urban regeneration with a green approach is always very topical, both in Finland and in Italy,” explains Arianna Callocchia, curator of the initiative.
