The opening conference of the 17th edition of Urbanpromo takes its name from the “Report on the investment of social infrastructure in Italy”, coordinated by Edoardo Reviglio and promoted by the Astrid Foundation and the Collegio Carlo Alberto Foundation of the Compagnia di San Paolo. The Report was born in the framework of the so-called Prodi report supported by the European Commission and ELTIA (European Long-Term Investors Association) and delivered to the Vice President of the European Commission Jyurki Katainen in January 2018. This is the result of an intense work of seven groups and about forty experts. Luisa Ingaramo, Giordana Ferri and Luca Talluri were part of the working group on the “home” infrastructure.
The conference follows and develops the initiative on the access to European funding held two years ago as part of Urbanpromo. The 2008-09 crisis was followed by a sharp drop in investments, which also affected investments in infrastructures relating to social services in sectors crucial for the future well-being of European citizens: health, education and sustainable construction.
With regard to Italy, the Report proposes the realization of an extraordinary plan to be implemented in 15 years at an estimated cost of about 150-200 billion for social infrastructures, a realistic and feasible forecast, with economic and social returns that would allow our country to manage some of the great challenges that await us. If the Plan were implemented within the time frame and at the costs estimated by the Report, Italy could have one of the best social infrastructure systems in Europe and in the world in the three major sectors that are at the center of our future, that of health, education and social housing.
In this context, the constitution of the National Committee for Social Housing takes on importance, which brings together the most representative subjects of the sector in order to put in place a common and shared planning capacity for the development of public-private partnership initiatives. The work of the conference will be fueled by the interventions of Research Institutes, social housing operators, leading exponents of foundations of banking origin, representatives of public institutions.
