Deputy Prime Minister Antonio Tajani and Minister of Culture Gennaro Sangiuliano at the Workshop for Ukraine Reconstruction launch

On Tuesday, 31 October, the “Workshop for Ukraine Reconstruction”, promoted by Triennale Milano and MAXXI, will be launched in collaboration with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and the Ministry of Culture.

Opening the event will be the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation Antonio Tajani, the Minister of Culture Gennaro Sangiuliano, the President of Triennale Milano Stefano Boeri and the President of Fondazione MAXXI Alessandro Giuli.

On behalf of Ukraine, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Dmytro Kuleba, and the Minister of Culture and Information Policy, Rostyslav Karandieiev, will take the floor via videoconference.

“Italy, along with its institutions and productive system, is strongly committed to supporting the Ukrainian reconstruction. We have extraordinary and well-known competence in protecting and safeguarding the cultural and landscape heritage in the world”, stated Tajani, and added, “The Workshop idea was born to combine the skills of Italian creatives and designers, international cultural institutions, businesses and economic Stakeholders for the promotion of urban and architectural regeneration across Ukrainian cities, starting from Odesa, under Italian patronage, by implementing a green, digital and sustainable transformational approach”.

The Workshop on Ukraine Reconstruction will include three sessions: one in Milan on 31 October and the following in Rome and Kyiv.

This first event at Triennale will see the participation of Italian and Ukrainian political representatives, International Financial Institutions and designers, architectural firms and institutions – some of which are already working to rebuild the Country. Specific attention will be given to the city of Odesa and the reconstruction of the Cathedral of the Transfiguration and other sites of historical relevance, fostering global urban regeneration through an innovative and sustainable approach.

The Workshop’s second session will be held at MAXXI in Rome and will host discussions among the Stakeholders willing to contribute to the reconstruction process.

In conclusion, the first series of Workshop activities will end at a conference in Kyiv, where the foundations will be laid to launch more advanced collaboration and verify the feasibility of the actions and plans agreed upon by the parties.
