In 2017 we witnessed the fateful fire at London’s Grenfell Tower. Last year, the same thing happened at the 60-metre high, newly built Moro Tower skyscraper. As a result, the UK government set up a Building Safety Programme, with the aim of ensuring that high-rise residential buildings are safe and that residents feel safe in them. The same is true in Italy.

The use of better products, of materials that not only help not to develop a fire, but prevent it, is a basic and fundamental solution. Tested samples of a cladding system with or without a ventilated chamber show the importance of horizontal intumescent and vertical barriers.

To this end, various projects will be shown with a practical approach using autoclaved aerated concrete by architects such as Filippo Innocenti, project manager of the Zaha Hadid studio in the United Kingdom.
