A door on a better world

An installation that reflects on the relationship between the environment and architecture, a discipline that is by definition devoted to landscape transformation, and on sustainability, safeguarding the present and envisioning the future. “A door on a better world” is the name of the initiative promoted by Scrigno in collaboration with YACademy, an international architecture Academy based in Bologna, to whom Scrigno has entrusted the curatorship of the project.

An international group selected among the young students of the Academy will develop a project under the tutorship of Mario Cucinella, one of the most important interpreters of sustainable architecture in Italy, who comments on the initiative as follows: "Mario Cucinella Architects has always been attentive to the issues related to the climate emergency and the training of a new generation of professionals in the field of sustainability, to face the great global challenges in the economic, social and environmental fields".

An experiential laboratory which in addition to stimulating students in the creation of a work that will be installed in the ArteSella park of contemporary art, looks to future generations, finding its concrete expression in the environmental requalification of an area with a high level of criticality, by participating in its replanting.

Maddalena Marchesini concludes in declaring “Sustainability and community are indissolubly bound together in the promotion of a kind of growth which considers attention to the environment and principles of responsibility as long-term competitive edges. Never before have these values been so necessary: as a leading company in one of the sectors that is reacting the fastest to global challenges, we are ready to make our contribution towards the relaunch of Italian industry.”
