Stefano Boeri Architetti alla Società Italiana Urbanisti

The Research Department of Stefano Boeri Architetti presents the Parco Italia project at the XVI National Conference of the Italian Society of Urban Planners, held from June 12th to 14th in Naples.

The conference, themed New Territorial Ecologies: Co-inhabiting Changing Worlds, focuses on new territorial ecologies that urban planning must urgently help define in order to sustainably and equitably co-inhabit our changing worlds.

Specifically, on Thursday, June 13th at 11:15 AM, Simone Marchetti from the Research Department of Stefano Boeri Architetti will present the vision of Parco Italia, a proposal by Stefano Boeri Architetti and AlberItalia inspired by the broader Green Urban Oases reforestation project – developed by Stefano Boeri Architetti together with FAO and other research organizations – aimed at creating ecological corridors across 90 cities from Africa to Central Asia.

The adaptation of this vision in Italy involves extending urban reforestation to the 15 metropolitan areas (Bari, Bologna, Cagliari, Catania, Florence, Genoa, Messina, Milan, Naples, Palermo, Reggio Calabria, Rome, Turin, Venice), allowing them to be connected via green corridors to the Apennine backbone and the Alpine system, creating a single large infrastructure along the entire peninsula. This would create a large unified system that would result in the planting of over 22 million new trees in a few years, roughly one tree for each inhabitant of the 15 cities: a number that could reach 60 million if extended to metropolitan areas with populations greater than 15,000.
