Social housing is the great theme at the center of Urbanpromo Social Housing, a specialized event promoted by INU together with Compagnia di San Paolo, Cariplo Foundation and CRT Development and Growth Foundation. CDPi Sgr and the Social Housing Foundation participate in the realization of the event.

For ten years Urbanpromo Social Housing has been the only Italian event entirely dedicated to housing policies, their tools, sectors and methods of intervention.

On 17 and 18 November 2020, the Triennale di Milano Hall of Honour will host the 10th edition of the event, as part of the 17th edition of “Urbanpromo Progetti per il Paese“.

The program that is being configured deal with, in succession, the theme of the demand for social infrastructures, that of the financial resources that can be activated and finally that of the landing of resources in the cities, that is, the ability to spend.

The binder of this succession is the aspiration to reduce the inequalities, accentuated by the effect of the pandemic, with direct feedback on the urban contexts. Here are the sessions that will make the program realised.

Opening session: “Re-launching social infrastructure in Italy“.
The session takes its name from the recent High-Level Task Force Report promoted by Fondazione Astrid e dalla Fondazione Collegio Carlo Alberto. Special Rapporteur is Edoardo Reviglio.
Luisa Ingaramo, Giordana Ferri and Luca Talluri are part of the working group on “home” infrastructure. The session, connected to the one on the access to European funding held two years ago, will be opened by a scenario research about the future evolution of housing demand (Nomisma for public housing, Cresme for social housing), and will focus on an introduction by Edoardo Reviglio.
Starting from “InvestEU”, the morning’s program will open to “Next Generation EU” and to the “Recovery Plan” and therefore, more generally, to the examination of the funding opportunities that will be activated at European level. The intervention of the Presidents or General Directors of the foundations of banking origin and of CDPi is expected.

Social housing and regeneration of degraded districts, session curated by Compagnia di San Paolo on the initiatives already activated and forthcoming to tackle the social emergencies caused by the epidemic. The program, currently under preparation, generally includes an initial frontal part, a central part organized with work tables and a final part in plenary session.

Urban regeneration, Social Housing and communities: the British model between villages and cities“, session curated by Fondazione Sviluppo e Crescita CRT. Preliminary contacts recorded the availability of The Prince’s Foundation (on sustainable urban planning, community involvement, investment models in strategic sectors such as housing, health, training), Poplar Harca (public utility body) which carries out a vast urban, community and economic regeneration program in the East End of London), The National Lottery Fund (public body that uses the funds raised by the national lottery to support projects with a significant social impact that affect health, the environment , education, social inclusion).
Social housing projects and realizations will be presented assuming some interpretations. For example, how social housing projects respond to the difficult of life and work conditions triggered by the spread of Covid-19.
