Party for the delivery of the 5.000 free cards of the Amici della Triennale to Milan students

Milan rethought by students in a sustainable way. This is the idea behind 'Ri-Abitiamo Milano', a project implemented by the Amici della Triennale involving the students of numerous Milanese high schools.
On Monday 20 September, 5,000 cards of Amici della Triennale were handed out to boys and girls of Milan's high schools as part of the event supported by the Fondazione Guido Venosta that provided the award ceremony for the winners of the 'Ri-Abitiamo Milano' contest.

The project was inspired by the ideas of the student movement 'Fridays for Future' and by the goals set out for a sustainable development within 2030. The main aim was to stimulate students to think of ideas that could become concrete proposals to make Milan a more sustainable city. 

With this in mind, the students then presented their projects for the redevelopment of neighbourhoods or entire disused areas to the jury of experts, made up of architect Mario Cucinella, scientist Stefano Mancuso, journalist and writer Alessandra Viola, and the Board of Directors of the Associazione Amici della Triennale. 

The winners of this edition were Davide Fantini and Dylan Amoruso for their project to redevelop the former Innocenti industrial area; the Permacultura project to adapt Milanese public green areas, by Carolina Bagnasacco, Arianna Fantoni, Lavinia Taverni; and the redevelopment of the Jewish neighbourhood by Alessia Nassimiha, Yael Recanati, Gabriel Loley, Jonathan Vona, Dan Hasbani. 

The three winners were rewarded with a 'culture voucher' worth 1,000 euro each (to spend on books, audiovisual materials, digital programmes). The students authors of the winning projects come from three different schools: the Caravaggio Art School, the Tito Livio Classical High School and the Federico Jarach Scientific High School of the Jewish Community.
