President’s Letter to the Stakeholders

Planning the transformation

New challenges for new needs. We are all undergoing one of the greatest transformations in recent history, as we find ourselves in a new context dictated by the health emergency that is profoundly changing our lives and the way we work, imposing new shared priorities.
New needs emerge in living spaces that require urban environments on a more human scale, versatile but at the same time comfortable domestic spaces, able to combine with work needs that need to be rethought.

  • “Designing with humanity” means putting at the centre the needs of the community in which the project is developed.


    43% of our people are women. All our projects will be enjoyed by both men and women. We believe that having different points of view, shared, united as a common factor, is a unique value in planning to provide answers to the needs of the whole human race.

  • Less energy, less emissions: designing works for a sustainable future


    8 energy certified /under certification projects by international bodies among the projects carried out in the last 5 years. Designing for a sustainable future means thinking about the future, the next generations, the impact that the work will have on the surrounding environment and on people throughout its life cycle.

  • The ultimate goal of an infrastructure is to connect peoples and communities of people


    9 infrastructures in Italy and in developing countries designed in the last 3 years, where every choice of our designers can have a significant social impact. It is necessary to understand the needs of the works’ users and listen to the communities. A value that goes beyond technology.

  • Participatory design makes projects functional to the needs of communities and therefore more resilient in the long term.


    11 associations, citizens, non-profit organizations and socio-cultural bodies with which we interact to implement our projects. Collaboration with bodies and institutions is essential in order to ensure that the social and human aspect is at the core of all our projects, even before the technical aspect. We do believe that the success of a work is measured, above all, in terms of potential shared benefit for the final users.
