We are right at the big moment: the Digital Week, one of the most important and popular events of the year, will start today together with the third edition of the exhibition-event "Smart City 2019: People, Technology and Materials", Conceived and organized by Material ConneXion® Italia, curated by Architect Giulio Ceppi and sponsored by the Municipality of Milan, the Lombardy Region and Assolombarda.
Smart City: People, Technology and Materials - objectives and contents of the 2019 edition
The exhibition intends to stimulate ideas and debates on the guiding theme of "via latina to the smart city”: A Smart City that is a system of relationships that produces value, where technology is an instrument of symbiosis and empathy.
The concept of the exhibition developed from the analysis of the most significant changes that are affecting our daily life. In a constantly changing urban scenario, how do citizens' needs evolve? Are we digital citizens increasingly connected and aware of the global challenges we share? Starting from these questions “Smart City: People, Technology
& Materials ”offers opportunities for reflections on the issues of urban innovation, telematic connectivity, inclusive city, technological solutions that improve the quality of everyday life, circular economy and new intra and interurban mobility.
In addition to case histories, experiences or projects presented by partner companies, the exhibition will be accompanied by a rich program of round tables, seminars, workshops, conferences and events. The period of the two Milanese Weeks will represent the moment of greater attention, of high number of visitors and concentration of events and debates. In the intermediate period, the exhibition will experience targeted and ad hoc events also with the collaboration of the various partners and exhibitors present.
