Under the sponsorship of the Embassy of Italy in Hanoi, the Hanoi People’s Committee and the UNESCO Vietnam, SCE Project Asia and IUAV of Venice organize an event in Hanoi on 20th and 21st March 2019, within the 3rd Italian Design Day: “Cities of the Future & Heritage Preservation”. Mr. Michele De Lucchi (Architect), as “Ambassador of the Italian Design in Vietnam 2019”, and other representatives of the institutional, academic and professional world (both Italians and Vietnamese) will intervene to this event. The aim is to contribute to the debate (which is still ongoing), between the operators of this sector and the public in general, on the necessity to combine the growth of Hanoi as “smart city” with the conservation and the valorisation of its wide architectual, historic and cultural heritage, especially looking at a sustainable development of the touristic services.
Hanoi, as well as many other Asian realities, is facing more and more the challenge to combine the dynamic urban development with the maintenance of its strong cultural identity. Over the past few years, thanks to the growing internationalisation of this country, the debate about the conservation of the historical heritage has been the main point within the local institutions’ agenda; they started to plan new approaches and such a relevant topic for a “smart” development of the Vietnamese capital, finding enthusiastic collaboration and support from the President of the Hanoi People’s Committee, Nguyen Duc Chung.
