Renato Brunetta, President of the Venice Sustainability Foundation (VSF/FVCMS), has been appointed Resident Corresponding Member of the Class of Moral Sciences, Literature, and Arts of the Institute of Veneto for Sciences, Letters, and Arts (IVSLA).
The election of Professor Brunetta was announced by IVSLA President Andrea Rinaldo during the Solemn Closing Assembly of the CLXXXV Academic Year, held today, May 28th, in the Scrutiny Hall of Palazzo Ducale.
President Brunetta commented on this recognition: “It is a great honor for me to have received this morning the diploma as a Resident Corresponding Member of the Class of Moral Sciences, Literature, and Arts of the Institute of Veneto for Sciences, Letters, and Arts.
The Venice Sustainability Foundation, which I have the honor to preside over, will contribute to showing the world that the Venetian miracle will continue, combining, as it has done for centuries, the objectives of ‘preservation’ of its physical and environmental context, the urbs, with those of ‘revitalization’ of the Venetian community, the civitas.
It is the vitality of the Venetian civitas that is the best guarantee for the sustainability of the preservation of its historical, artistic, and architectural heritage.
Venice’s history is a millennia-old story of resilience, an admirable and tireless training in sustainability.”
