The Italian section of the International Society of Public Law (ICON-S) aims to serve as a forum to nurture infra- and inter-disciplinary debate and provide a space for the Italian legal academic community to broaden their involvement in public law debates taking place on a global scale.
During the IV ICON-S Conference, we will participate in panels: N° III/31 “The Material Constitution in Comparative Context”; il N°IV/3 “The Emperor’s new clothes: new and renewed EU policies and institutions”; N° IV/18: “Winning the Water Battle: Sustainable Innovation, Nature-Based Solutions, Legal Strategies, and Co–Governance to Overcome Water Scarcity”.

The purpose of the Santa Maria della Pietà Integrated Urban Plan is to create a Health and Wellness Hub, a hybrid infrastructure articulated in spaces and activities that aspire to promote people’s development through shared pathways that facilitate the improvement of their socio-occupational skills, the acquisition of new healthy lifestyles and prioritize psychophysical well-being, including through nutrition education, the promotion of new business ideas and innovation in agribusiness and health, legality, sports and exercise in an area also endowed with ecological and naturalistic value.
Therefore, the urban regeneration project on the Santa Maria della Pietà complex will have to contemplate actions to meet the growing need for new spaces for personal care and psycho-physical well-being, which find in the Santa Maria della Pietà facility a fertile environment where, while respecting the historical and cultural value of the complex, social welfare activities, job training, business development, workshops, and enjoyment and entertainment can be developed in its public spaces and particularly those endowed with ecological and naturalistic value – integrated activities that promote not only the well-being of people, but also a connection with neighboring neighborhoods and, ultimately, with the city.
In questo contesto, la Luiss Guido Carli in collaborazione con LabGov ETS (LABoratorio per la GOVernance dei beni comuni – LabGov ETS), entità non profit affiliata all’Università Luiss Guido Carli, intende avviare un laboratorio di co-progettazione per elaborare (i) una proposta di governance complessiva del complesso di Santa Maria della Pietà che dia vita ad un partenariato fra soggetti pubblici, della società civile organizzata e del Terzo settore, della scuola e delle università, di singoli o gruppi di cittadini, di privati sociali e/o responsabili (c.d. attori della quintuplica elica) e (ii) sviluppare un’ipotesi di programmazione funzionale per la rigenerazione di alcuni dei suoi padiglioni e in particolare dei padiglioni 24, 28, 41, ad oggi di proprietà della ASL e della Regione Lazio.
The House of Emerging Technologies in Rome represents a true living lab, the seat of innovation, experimentation and smart city-oriented design, inside the Tiburtina station.
This project was implemented by Roma Capitale with co-financing from MISE (Ministry of Economic Development) and other corporate partners, totaling about 6 million euros.
The idea behind this project is extremely dynamic and envisions an imminent future in which emerging technologies, such as blockchain, the Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI) and integration with 5G networks, will be the drivers of sustainable economic development in the city.
This multipurpose space aims to host a wide range of activities, including startup creation, technology transfer to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), development of applied research projects and new experiments, as well as participation in educational events. Its more than 800 square meters include bright environments and offer a wide range of services and tools, including co-working spaces for individual work, meeting rooms for group work, brainstorming and co-design meetings.
In order to facilitate the participation of startups and SMEs, the House of Emerging Technologies in Rome will organize a series of workshops to facilitate the formation of entrepreneurial teams, the definition of ideas and the exchange of information between innovators and the business world.
This project has La Sapienza University, Tor Vergata University, Luiss Guido Carli University and Roma Tre University as university partners, while technical partners include LVenture Group, Innova and Peekaboo, and corporate partners include TIM, Acea and Wind-Tre.
Among the research, development and innovation activities supported by CTE is CO-Roma, the first active platform on the territory of Rome for sustainable and just urban innovation, also supporting co-design for the development of governance tools that facilitate technology transfer and integration among actors in the Roman innovation ecosystem.
Positive Energy Districts (PEDs or “PEDs”) are a key tool for achieving Europe’s Green Deal and climate goals by 2030. A PED is an energy self-sufficient, zero-carbon urban district. More precisely, the term “positive energy” refers to energy produced within districts through the use of renewable energy sources and fed back into the grid.
However, PEDs often constitute isolated realities within cities, and the challenge is to integrate them harmoniously into pre-existing urban contexts, creating climate-neutral, resilient and livable neighborhoods.
There are visions, plans, designs and solutions for PEDs, but the real issue is the definition of concrete, innovative, inclusive and shared co-design strategies for existing PEDs.
The goal of PED4ALL is to develop feasible, operational, implementable, and inclusive strategies that can be adopted by DPEs and neighborhood stakeholders in order to promote a profound energy transition in cities. This three-year project will involve an action-oriented network of DPE and neighborhood stakeholders in Belgium, Italy, and Turkey, who will apply a shared co-design methodology to define a set of energy, policy, regulatory, governance, social, spatial, and design strategies for urban transition and innovation. These strategies will be tested and may become replicable.
Project partners will engage in a series of online and in-person activities to co-produce a set of practical tools aimed at creating a community of practice and positioning Europe as a global model for urban energy transformation.
