Ortialti was born from the meeting of Elena and Emanuela, two architects with different research and professional backgrounds, which perfectly merged into the new project.
Sustainable design, urban marketing and cultural programming on the one hand; participatory planning, urban sociology, and social innovation on the other: knowledge, experience, methods, approaches and passion that converge today into a new shared challenge.
