Italy is recognized as a worldwide trendsetter and leader in design. It is a unique nation that can boast a history of a highly diverse and extensive range of architectural design. Ancient Rome and the Italian Renaissance gave Italy a rich architectural heritage that influenced building design around the world. Every part of Italy brims with architectural wonders.

The Embassy of Italy in Canada has the honour to present the third lecture in the Italy A Place To Go series, focusing on Italy’s advancements in design and architecture. In celebration of Italian Design Day on July 8, the webinar will highlight how present-day Italian architects are at the forefront of modern and sustainable design.

This year’s theme, “Project and Materials, New Sustainable Challenges to Relaunch Made in Italy,” is multi-dimensional and forward-looking. Design is about intelligent solutions that help us improve our quality of life; the challenge is to do it while letting ourselves be guided by beauty, balance, harmony, and especially by a respect for the environment in which we live.”
