Protect the cities and the public spaces, combine safety and beauty, involve the creatives to design innovative solutions including natural and vital elements to guarantee a better quality of urban life. Stefano Boeri speaking about “an accurate use of natural beauty” proposed to use trees, plants and flowerpots instead of new jersey and concrete barriers which block streets and squares. The first to reply to this appeal was the Mayor of Florence Dario Nardella, with the call to arts #Florencecalling, which was born from Boeri’s idea. The dialogue is open on international scale.
