Participants will be welcomed by Duccio Campagnoli, Chairman of BolognaFiere, after which addresses will be given by Virginio Merola, Mayor of Bologna, Norbert Lantschner, Coordinator of the SAIE Smart House Project, and Claudio De Albertis, Chairman of ANCE.

Special guest Marcelo Sánchez Sorondo, Chancellor of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences and of the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences, will comment on Pope Francis’s encyclical “Laudato Si’, on care for our common home” in front of an audience representing the entire world of construction.
