Two main online events are a webinar under the theme “Revitalise Urban Areas,” and an online talk on “Application of Technology in Preserving Cultural Heritages,” connecting Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City and Milan.

Since 2017, the "Italian Design Day" initiative, introduced by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Fondazione Compasso d’Oro, and the Triennale di Milano, has been warmly received by many countries around the world, including Vietnam.

Each year, 100 Italian cultural ambassadors in 100 cities will showcase and exchange ideas with art enthusiasts, architects, designers, and landscape architects to seek answers to intriguing questions regarding future cities and sustainable development.

Architect Massimo Roj, Ambassador of this year's Italian Design Day, will join the webinar from Milan to provide young Vietnamese architects and the public with an overview of trends as well as solutions for some urban revitalization projects in Italy, Vietnam and other countries.
