L’Italia rinasce con un Fiore – The Project of Stefano Boeri

The Italian Architect Stefano Boeri (who has created the Vertical Forest in Milan) has developed an architectural concept for the Italian Anti-Covid-19 Vaccination Campaign. We don’t want to just vaccinate. We want to do it in style. Italy is the Design center of the world.

Under the slogan “L’Italia rinasce con un Fiore” – “With a flower, Italy comes back to life”, the proposal of the designer are temporary pavilions in form of a pink springtime flower.

Stefano Boeri: “With the image of a springtime flower, we wanted to create an architecture that would convey a symbol of serenity and regeneration. Getting vaccinated will be an act of civic responsibility, love for others, and the rediscovery of life. If this virus has locked us up in hospitals and homes, the vaccine will bring us back into contact with life and the nature that surrounds us”.
