This project will propose an analysis about the Italian women's
condition on construction sites. Indeed, construction sites are one of
the places where discrimination is more common, where women don't have,
at least in Italy, a significant presence.
The project will be developed, at first,
with a public and shared confrontation by means of a round table open to
the public. It will take place between March 6th and 8th 2010 at La
Fabbrica del Vapore in Milan.

created during the workshop. At the same time, an exhibition showed
the state of art of reusing at international level through examples
of high formal, aesthetic and functional quality.
