A round table as a place of confrontation for the team of the collective, which can present and discuss - with experts, institutions, professionals and the public present - the project in being, in order to translate into concrete proposals the theoretical reflections on the peculiarities of the territories involved in a direct reference to the people who live there.


It starts with "Off-cells. Un luogo di lavoro per le Foreste Casentinesi" which proposes a system of buildings made up of the aggregation of different uses and inspired by five criteria: facilitating the transmission of knowledge, re-proposing the harmony of proportions of religious buildings, permitting the coexistence and integration of work and residential activities, practising empathy towards the forest and the surrounding environment in the choice of materials and geometries, offering adaptability over time by providing for the possibility of expansion or dismantling and relocation of the building. "Off-cells. Un luogo di lavoro per le Foreste Casentinesi" tackles the theme of forests as a preferential sphere for the economic development of the wood industry, today a relaunching theme for the production sector within an integrated vision with local housing models.
