Chiara Appendino, current Mayor of Torino, was among the first signatories of the weTree pact.
Her commitment for weTree project comes from the close collaboration with Agroinnova, Centre of Competence for innovation in the agro-environmental field of the University of Torino, in order to recover a green area of the old town so far neglected. The Woodland of Others will be located inside Palazzo Nuovo area, between Via Verdi and Corso San Maurizio: the structure houses the School of Humanities and its departments. The space identified for the future forest is part of the green area in front of Palazzo Nuovo and is the last step needed for the complete “green” renewal of the structure. Authors of the Woodlands of Others are two landscape designers from Torino who have already developed sustainable projects in the area and won international awards.
