38th EU PVSEC – 22/06/21

Towards solar landscapes that connect

10th year anniversary

The event was successfully held

on 22.06.2021

from XVII Architecture Venice Biennial

 

Section Resilience, Art and Landscape,
Resilient Communities, Italian Pavilion.

Concept

More than ever, it is necessary to find the pattern that connects. The pattern that connects our actions for the health of the Planet, and for the health of all humans.
We need to build up an idea of preservation and resilience that must be inclusive both socially and ecologically. Humans matter, our life matters, and this requires a shift in the way we inhabit and use this Planet.

The Italian Living Lab

Italy, with the highest number of Unesco heritage sites worldwide together with China, and among the countries with the most ambitious renewable (i.e. photovoltaic) energy targets in Europe, is a living lab for experimenting with contradictions and synergies between a traditional idea of preservation, and the new challenges offered by the introduction of photovoltaics in the landscape.
