On Tuesday November 14th at 9.30 a.m., Palazzo della Valle in Rome hosts the presentation of the Parco Italia project, a proposal by Stefano Boeri Architetti and AlberItalia.
Parco Italia, in keeping with the project of a World Park proposed by Richard Weller, aims to gradually establish a national ecological network that links together protected areas, national and regional parks, protected marine areas and ‘Natura 2000’ sites of community interest through a series of pedestrian and cycle paths that include a high biodiversity of plant species.
Parco Italia envisages the protection of areas in the vicinity of existing parks and nature reserves, supporting and managing the renaturalisation processes of neighbouring natural and semi-natural areas, with the aim of protecting, expanding, managing and restoring protected and unprotected natural and semi-natural areas to implement their connectivity. A long-term increase in natural capital and connectivity, achieved through natural or assisted regeneration and restoration of disturbed, degraded or deforested forests, could increase the supply of productive ecosystem services, environmental regulation and cultural services provided by forests to local and global communities.
After the institutional introduction by Alfredo Mantovano, Secretary of the Council of Ministers, Stefano Boeri, Patrizio Giacomo La Pietra, Undersecretary of State MASAF, and a video message by Richard Weller, speakers include: Sabrina Alfonsi, Councillor for Agriculture,
Environment and Waste Cycle of the Municipality of Rome; Massimiliano Giansanti, President of Confagricoltura; Maria Chiara Pastore, Coordination Research Park Italy; Marco Marchetti, President of AlberItalia Foundation; Giorgio Busnelli, EU Vice President, FMCG Categories, Amazon; Giulio Lattanzi, Touring Club General Director; Antonio Montani, CAI General President; Giorgio Matteucci, SISEF Vice President; Alessandra Stefani, MASAF General Director; Giorgia Fazzini, Foundation for the Future of Cities.
