On Wednesday, March 21st Stefano Boeri participates to the third edition of the Human Rights Festival in Milan, a cultural event created to raise awareness on human rights. The theme of 2018 is the Devastation of the Earth and how this looting weighs on human rights.
City Lights TALK. Metropolis enlights hopes
A growing population, increasingly gathered in cities. Metropolis can be the solution to big contemporary issues. As long as we don’t act as for Leonia, the imaginary city of Italo Calvino that was throwing everything in the garbage, making it «a fortress of indestructible wastes».
