The “3CODESIGN_3R_Ridurre_Riciclare_Riutilizzare” exhibition of Italian ecodesign organized by the Italian Cultural Institute and arranged by architect Silvana Annicchiarico, opened in Tunis. The exhibition aims to offer an overview of how, in the light of the new need for environmental sustainability, Italian design is going through a real trend reversal from the production systems and design strategies applied in the 20th century. Design and production is reconsidered not only in terms of environmental sustainability but also of a new sociality based on sharing, responsibility and respect for future generations.
Therefore, in a way whereby waste goes back to being a raw material and that puts recycling and reusing at the basis of a circular economy capable of overcoming the notion of squandering and wasting. The exhibition was inaugurated by the Italian Ambassador in Tunis, Lorenzo Fanara at the presence of a large number of students, architects, and experts in the sector. The exhibition, which is hosted at the Cité des Sciences until 15 July, aims to sensitize youths to consume resources responsibly, as was underscored by the director of the Cité des Sciences, Fethi Zaghrouba, a university professor and expert in research on energy and environmental technology.
