International Talks in Orvieto
The topics of the talks concern the central theme: Reinvention and Redevelopment of Architectural and Urban Spaces.
Contemporary society tends to the wired connected, to relationships through networks and to the communication of experiences in the absence of direct interpersonal contact. We believe that should be emphasized the need to confer not only telematically.
The reorganization of the city is still a cultural adventure that contributes to the planet’s peaceful construction. We can enable useful relationships from the reinvention and qualification of home space. Talks International Orvieto, set in the autumn, allow a business meeting between members of the Center and experts invited to update the status of experience in Orvieto and abroad, define the future activities of the Center and the Biennial, reflect on the prospects and future developments, taking into account the critical evaluation of the present.
