On July 20th, 2016, a press conference was held at the Italian Chamber of Deputies in Rome, for the presentation of “Smart cities against pollution”, the Forum where national and international stakeholders can discuss the most innovative solutions and experiences in the field of clean technologies applied to urban air quality.
The first stop has been today in Milan, a city that is a symbol of growth, innovation and also pollution, due to the intense industrial and commercial activity of recent decades. The appointment was held in the Salone d’Onore of the Triennale, and saw a day of debate, discussion and examination of operational proposals on the pollution problem, in the presence of entrepreneurs, companies, mayors, sponsors and journalists. Presenting the day was Antonio Cianci, president of CIATEC and Air Quality Alliance, and the Honourable Antonio Palmieri, co-founder of the Parliamentary Innovation Intergroup.
The conference also saw the presentation of the Air Quality Alliance, a new institution that intends to specifically promote projects, studies and tools around the world to raise awareness of pollution-related risks, and our partner in the event.
