AE: Eloisa you were selected among many young people to join G124 workgroup Renzo Piano on the outskirts and the city that will be. How did you feel when you heard you were chosen for this important work?
ELOISA: the selection was "silent" through anonymous ad serving, so see to have been chosen for a job with Senator Renzo Piano was obviously a source of great joy. The experience within the Group G124 represents a great opportunity for personal growth as well as professional of course. Think of the suburbs as the city of the future where should focus the forces and expectations of the new generations is a key issue and extremely topical. It led by a great architect Renzo Piano, who in recent months has left us his ability to see the hidden beauty in delicate areas and degraded, it was an amazing experience.
