“Tin boot. Europe is with you. Also to restore the distorted balance between nature and the built environment. Next Generation Eu provides 6 billion euros for Italy, aimed at reducing the risks of floods and landslides. For example, the bed of the river Po will be restored, with concrete removal interventions and green reactivation on the banks, to make room for nature. We must make nature our partner in the fight against climate change.” This was stated by the President of the EU Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, speaking at the Biennale, and focusing on the floods in Emilia-Romagna.
The day after the visit with the President of the EU Commission in Emilia-Romagna, the Prime Minister, Giorgia Meloni, once again asked for flexibility in European funds. Speaking at the Festival of Economy in Trento, the prime minister said: “Above all, we will activate the solidarity fund, there is also the cohesion fund” and the possibility of “flexibility of existing funds”, including the Pnrr, is also fundamental. . .
Above all, the PNRR refers to security -he observed- it is a strategic fund” for the unforeseen events. “I went to Japan to appoint a commissioner for drought and I will return” having to create one for bad weather “the security of the territory is an absolute priority.”
“We are going to give everything possible, I am excited and shocked,” says the president of the EU. He then helps a boy out of the mud. The square sings ‘Romagna mia’ (ANSA)
“This month Italy has once again fallen victim to the effects of climate change,” von der Leyen said. Yesterday I was in Emilia-Romagna. I’ve seen the floods, the landslides. Driving through the mud-covered streets, I was struck by not only the impressive extent of the damage, but also the wonderful reaction of the locals. They are working tirelessly to clean everything up and help neighbors in need. We have seen angels in the mud. Volunteers from all over Italy. Angels in the mud Rescuers from France, Belgium, Slovakia, Slovenia. And next to it: the European Union, ”he explained.
“It is a wonder threatened by climate change,” says the president of the EU Commission (ANSA)
“Man-made damage is particularly tangible here in Venice. We can avoid the worst case, but it all depends on our speed of action. Reducing emissions from buildings is crucial to achieving climate neutrality and slowing sea level rise“, added the president of the EU Commission
“For us, the concept of solidity translates into sustainability. Palladio believed that buildings must stand the test of time. Buildings will only pass that test if they are sustainable,” he emphasized. “The Republic of Venice welcomed Andrea Palladio, one of the great masters of the Renaissance and one of the most influential architects of all time. However, his legacy is not limited to the suggestive Palladian villas and the modification of the city’s skyline , but also includes his architectural theory. Palladio rediscovered the ancient Latin idea according to which the perfect building must meet the three criteria of solidity, utility and beauty, a triad that architects have been inspired by for centuries. And these three principles they have also inspired the new European Bauhaus. For us, the concept of solidity translates into sustainability. Palladio believed that buildings should stand the test of time. Buildings will pass that test only if they are sustainable,” he explained. “The second principle is , again, beauty. We rationally understand the need to act for the climate. But sustainable buildings must also speak in the language of emotions. With the new European Bauhaus we want to show that even what is necessary can be beautiful “Beauty must become our ally in the fight against climate change. Thirdly, we have given a strong social connotation to the Palladian idea of utility. Beauty and sustainability must be affordable for people of all backgrounds and families of all income levels.” Consequently, the third principle of the new European Bauhaus is inclusion, because beauty and sustainability must be within everyone’s reach”, added the number one European executive.
‘The islands of San Basilio and Santa Marta have been reborn with the initiative. The European Bauhaus called ‘Bauhaus of the mountains’ was born in South Tyrol, says the president of the EU (ANSA)
