Florence City of Peace
Florence since the early 50’ has been promoter and protagonist of the dialogue and the assembly between the local representatives of the most important cities in the world, starting from the awareness that the risks of conflict feed on eradication and the loss of identity which reduce the sense of belonging to a local community.
Florence city of integration and social inclusion
Florence made of its cultural heritage the instrument that can contribute to the processes of people's dialogue and pacification starting from the protection and respect for different cultural heritages, conceived as an integral part of collective identity.
Florence resilient city
Florence is working tenaciously to resist and adapt to the climate changes impacts, through measures designed to improve the city during phases of crises and during “positive” periods of time, making sensible choices with environmental sustainability and with an intelligent use of resources in crucial areas such as urban planning, mobility, waste disposal, heating, construction policies, public lighting.
