Last year the Dutch Embassy in Rome and the Consulate General in Milan called out for urban projects about Food, Water and Energy. The purpose for this open call was to get Dutch and Italian architects, researchers and other creatives to work together on urban challenges. This resulted in a successful programme of Dutch Italian collaborations. For this evening we invited four of these projects to Amsterdam to tell us how they worked together, the different urban challenges and future projects.

The objective of Il mercato al centro was to explore with experts working in the Netherlands which could be the future role of markets in the reanimation of the neighbourhoods from a social point of view as a service to the citizen, from the health one thanks to quality food, from an environmental one with short chain food distribution and lastly from an economic one supporting local production.

Il mercato al centro is a cooperation of Eutropian, the TUTUR project of the City of Rome,TSPOON and supported by the Dutch Embassy in Rome.
