The international conference "The Architecture of well tempered environment- An orchestra of integrated instruments", that was held in Rome last May 19 and 20 was attended by about 40 Italian and foreign speakers and had an audience of over 400 regularly registered persons (engineers, architects, experts of the energy sector, municipal, provincial and regional government bodies, students, etc.). The majority of them, almost 250, were surprisingly young people (students, university researchers and young architects) and this was a great success. Probably, the changes, which recently have hit Italy, arrived in the world of architects too and finally they start to rethink the way to design architecture and the city.
For two days the Eurosolar Italia Association, in collaboration with UIA / ARES (Union Internationale des Architectes / Architecture and Renewable Energy Sources) and the Chamber of Architects of Rome and Province, have sought to stimulate and analyze the basic parameters of this change. The welcome addresses by the civil authorities saw the participation of the Lazio Region Vice President MP Luciano Ciocchetti, the Councillor to the Territory of the Province of Rome Michele Civita and the European Union MEP Silvia Costa. The conference was opened by the President of the Chamber of Architects of Rome and Province Amedeo Schiattarella, by the President of the Council for the Sustainable Design and Energy Efficiency and Member of the Board of the Architects of Rome, Patrizia Colletta, by Eurosolar Vice-President Josep Puig, by the Eurosolar Italia President Francesca Sartogo, by Albert Dubler for the UIA, by Nikos Fintikakis for the UIA / ARES and by Antonio Raffaele Riverso for the UIA Italian section.
During the morning of the first day some fundamental issues on general policy and overall strategy were discussed with three key lectures: prof. Serge Latouche introduced the problem of the limits of the development and proposed a strategy of "decrease growth" or otherwise of a "controlled growth"; prof. Christos Zerefos deeply analyzed the process of climate change in relation with the well-tempered environment and sustainability and Peter Droege, President of the Eurosolar and Professor of Sustainable Spatial Development at the University of Liechtenstein, introduced an advanced vision, already realized in some parts of the world, regarding the realization of a new energetic independent model based on renewable resources and the abandonment of fossil fuels.
In the afternoon, "a panel discussion" coordinated by prof. Federico Butera together with Nikos Fintikakis, Francesca Sartogo and Patrizia Colletta urged the participation of some experts and of the public in the definition of the new paradigm for construction, for our cities and for our territory: critical points, treatments and possible scenarios.
The second day were addressed issues on the integrated planning and realizations.
The strategy for "energy conservation", "passive solar house" and the "well tempered environment" in the key lecture of Prof. Mattheos Santamouris.

“The Sustainable City: Urban Energy Planning and Zero - Emission City”: Maria Berrini- Paolo Rutelli
At the end of the Conference, as a result of shared proposals, was drafted the "Manifesto Finale", based on 10 fundamental actions for the future of the “Architecture for the well tempered environment".
To furthermore confirm the strategies and actions proposed in the " Final Manifesto", some design excellencies were presented during the award ceremony of the European and National Solar Prize (years 2008/2009/2010), celebrated by Eurosolar President Peter Droege, Legambiente President Vittorio Cogliati Dezza and Eurosolar Italia President Francesca Sartogo.
