IAPS 2008: Barbara Mezzaroma alla Lumsa - Ecobuilding and Bioclimatic Architecture for Community Support and Diversity Integration

IAPS 2008:
Ecobuilding and Bioclimatic Architecture for Community Support and Diversity Integration

Barbara Mezzaroma alla Lumsa

Roma 30 luglio 2008. Edifici di abitazione che utilizzano energia, anche per usi climatici, derivante al 50% da fonti rinnovabili, come le fonti geotermiche, quelle "microeoliche", quelle fotovoltaiche; una bolletta più leggera di almeno 900 Euro all'anno, ricambio costante dell'aria con recupero del calore.

Sono questi gli elementi salienti che caratterizzano non le case del futuro, ma quelle che già oggi si costruiscono a Roma e nelle zone limitrofe.

Se ne è discusso ieri pomeriggio alla LUMSA di Roma nel quadro dei lavori del convegno internazionale biennale IAPS 2008, che si concluderà venerdì.

Paolo Portognesi, il Gruppo Mezzaroma, la Fondazione Bruno Zevi, Franco Zagari, sono i protagonisti ed i realizzatori di progetti insediativi che si propongono di rispettare l'equilibrio tra la antropizzazione e le risorse natrurali, tra il fabbisogno di energia e la limitazione delle emissioni, tra i nuovi quartieri e quelli preesistenti.

"L'importante è avere una filosofia di base che faccia affrontare le singole tematiche con una certa attenzione", ha affermato Barbara Mezzaroma, "la tecnologia consente di realizzare tutto".

Il concetto di "verde pubblico" si estende e diventa un fattore dimensionalmente molto rilevante rispetto agli edifici, include la flora preesistente, corsi d'acqua ed invasi di grandi dimensioni, fino a realizzare una casa all'interno di un parco, e non solo un'area verde a servizio della casa.

IAPS 2008 prevede attività complementari di notevole interesse, come i "field trips" correlati con le tavole rotonde in programma, che porteranno i congressisti ed i giornalisti a verificare sui luoghi gli esiti pratici delle tematiche discusse in aula.

1A - Natural and archeological heritage in peri-urban areas
(Organized by A.R.P. Agenzia Regionale Parchi, Lazio)

Location: Tuscolo Hill of Castelli Romani Regional Park
The Castelli Romani Regional Park is part of the wide regional green network of 70 natural protect areas of Lazio Region, under the supervision of the Regional Agency for Parks ( Agenzia Regionale dei Parchi-Lazio ). The Castelli Romani Park covers a large area south-east of Rome, including the geological remains of the most recent and biggest of Latium's four volcanic complexes, namely "Vulcano laziale".The activity of this volcano began about 600,000 years ago and continued until about 10,000 years ago.
The protected area stretches for more than 12,000 acres, mostly woods. Most of these are chestnuts used for cutting; to a lesser extent, there are oaks, lindens and maples, residues of the original forest.
The Castelli Romani Regional Park is a place characterized by high natural and cultural diversities, bridging together the Rome urban territory with peri-urban natural ecosystems.
The Tuscolo Hill, proposed for our visit, is located inside this Park and shows examples of these diversities: the archaeological remains of the ancient latin city of Tuscolo, and a view that allows to appreciate the typical landscape morphology of the Colli Albani, their geological history, the controversial impact of human presence, witnessing how a policy of environmental re-balancing is both difficult and essential.

2 A- Periurban agriculture for education to sustainable agriculture
(organized by Coldiretti)

Location: Eco-park "Valentino's farm"

Immersed in the green of the Regional Park of the Castelli Romani and in the characteristic rural countryside, "Valentino's farm" covers approximately 50,000 square meters of land in the hills and is part of the 17 hectares of a farm oriented predominantly to wine production. "Valentino's farm" was conceived, designed and implemented to make the children, through direct experience, to live campaign in the rhythms of nature and productions, seasonal fruit and vegetables in the paths of production and consumption food cycles of aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems (composting and recycling). This is accomplished through teaching and educational paths set up to the purpose of implementing the pedagogy of learning by doing, in a balanced encounter between the five senses and nature. This task , with the intention to contribute to the formation of an ecological identity and to promotion of pro-environmental behaviours among younger generations.

3A – Managing sustainable biodiversity in urban areas
(Organized by RomaNatura-Ente Regionale per la Gestione del Sistema delle Aree Naturali Protette nel Comune
di Roma)

Location: Nature Park of Decima Malafede

The "RomaNatura" Regional Authority, established in the 1997 with the Regional Law number 29/97, rules 15 nature parks situated within the city's boundaries, a sample of the rich and vast Roman countryside that has enchanted and nourished the visitors and the inhabitants of Rome for centuries.
The Nature Park of Decima Malafede is a invaluable patrimony within its riches past and present; medieval ruins blend with educational farms and organically cultivated fields. Through the 6.000 hectares of protected area, nature and history continuously alternate and mingle with each other. Woods of holms, popular trees, willows, corks and laurel bushes stretch inside the Reserve, recalling to the memory the ancient Laurentina forest.

4A - Sustainable water supply in Rome from ancient Roman to present times
(Organized by ACEA ATO 2)

Location: Aqueduct Vergine

The management of water resources in the city of Rome dates back from the ancient Roman times, and is a relevant issue in the present day environmental agenda. The focus of this field trip will be the Aqueduct Vergine, built in the 19 A.C. by the consul Marco Agrippa, which has its origin close to Aniene river. The town plan studied by Agrippa presupposed the creation of a long aqueduct useful to supply with water the Campo Marzio area. Its length was of approximately 20 km. It was damaged from the decline of the time. The restoration and the reopening of the aqueduct through the construction of the numerous Fountains have characterized the architectonic and urbanistic design of the renaissance and baroque Rome. The main fountain of the aqueduct is the famous Fontana di Trevi. The Fontana di Trevi started in the XVII Century and was finished in 1762 by architect Giuseppe Pannini.
The trip will aim at illustrating the complex system of water management in the city of Rome, its large net of fountains and aqueducts, and its evolution from ancient roman times to present day time.

Ecobuilding and Bioclimatic Architecture for Diversity Integration

Field Trip Partnership: Pietro Mezzaroma and Sons

Moderators: A.M. Nenci, G.Carrus, F. Fornara (Conference Scientifc Organizing Committe)
Discussant: G. Moser (President of IAPS)

Invited Speakers:
A. De Giusti (President, XVII Municipality, Rome)
F. Orlandi (Director, ITACA Department, Sapienza, Università di Roma)
L. Zevi (Zevi Foundation): tbc
B. Mezzaroma (Pietro Mezzaroma and Sons)
R. Cremonesi (Cremonesi Consulenze Gestioni Energetiche)
F. Zagari (Project Manager, Parco Talenti)

on Friday morning (9:00-14:00), August 1st

1B– Ecobuilding and Bioclimatic Architecture for Community Support and Diversity Integration
(Organized by Pietro Mezzaroma e figli )

Location:Talenti Park

The areas to be visited on this Fieldtrip are part of the urban development currently being carried out by Pietro Mezzaroma e figli (Pietro Mezzaroma and Sons), a group that deals primarily with real estate and construction. The area to be visited is located on the outskirts of the more developed zone. It is a new neighborhood that will act as a filter between the main city and the Talenti Park, which extends about 40 hectares. The approach taken in this project is based on the analysis of the environmental context through monitoring and mapping the microclimate and atmospheric factors, such as wind patterns. It is essential to study wind direction and intensity, solar radiation, temperature, relative humidity, biophysical elements (e.g. vegetation), the geological make-up, and perhaps most importantly, the geothermal characteristics of the land. In this way, the group is among Italy's first to make use of highly innovative methods, tapping into thermal springs lying beneath Rome's soil for a potential source of renewable energy. Both the physical and the design-related decisions defining this project are aimed at creating an example of eco-friendly structure strongly linked to the local context and identity. This will be done through the inclusion of materials traditionally used in the Rome area, large open spaces which will allow people to take full advantage of the pleasant climate, and a sustainable power plant that can eliminate approximately 87% of CO2 emissions, as compares to an area of comparable acreage powered by traditional systems. Another key feature of the project, is the park, which will be the second stop on the fieldtrip. The park was designed with biodiversity in mind, through the selection of indigenous species and a careful analysis of the minor infrastructures, such as pathways, fences, and lighting, all of which are meant to favor the flora and fauna present in this area.

Corporate Social Responsibility and Environment

Field Trip Partnership: B.A.T.-British American Tobacco Italia S.pA.

Moderator: M. Bonaiuto
Discussant: E. Pol

Invited Speakers:
A. Adotti (General Counsel, Corporate Affairs, Security and Real Estate Director BAT ITALIA)
Carlo Folci (Vice President, Fondazione Terra)
Gianluigi Peduto (President, Park Castelli Romani)
Roberto Sinibaldi (Director, Park Castelli Romani)
Pasquale Boccia (Mayor, Rocca di Papa Municipality)

on Friday morning (9:00-14:00), August 1st

1C. Corporate Social Responsibility and Environment
(Organized by BAT - British American Tobacco Italia S.p.A.)

Location: Castelli Romani Regional Park

The Castelli Romani Regional Park was established with the Regional Law no. 2 of 13th January 1984 with the aim to safeguard the integrity of the natural and cultural features of the fifteen towns situated within the ancient Vulcano Laziale and to contribute to the territorial rebalancing and the social and economic development of the people involved.
In this context this protected area gives an example on how a private company as B.A.T. Italia can contribute to minimise its impact on biodiversity and the wider environment achieving a safeguard and reforestation project with the aim of compensating its CO2 emissions.
It demonstrates that private companies, local authorities and no-profit organisations could play a considerable role promoting and supporting together environmental initiatives, in order to achieve more effective results in the maintenance of the environmental balance of the territory.
The main topic will be, also, focused on the assumption that a proper management of the environment and a sustainable use of the territory could have a very positive impact not only from the ecological and environmental point of view but also from the social and economic side.
