The Foundation of the Order of Architects P.P.C. of the Province of Milan continues promoting the initiative “The Contribution of Women in Contemporary Architecture” curated by the architect Arianna Callocchia. Its goal is to continue to highlight the role and the importance that women play in contemporary architecture. The event has been organised to foster discussion and create an opportunity for dialogue and professional exchange between the Italian and the international scenario.
