Art, literature and technology marry in the name of green: the Ripetta school of Rome invents the ‘Dante Energia’. In particular, it was the class V Cd that designed a technological island powered by solar panels whose columns reproduce the Dante Giovinetto by the painter Puccio Capanna. Real digital islands, available to all those who use electric vehicles, from scooters to mopeds and bicycles, which can be installed in Italian parks and on the main streets of cities, to stimulate citizens to live in a sustainable way and to zero emissions. To praise the initiative of the Roman high school students Vittorio Sgarbi who sent them a message to encourage them to make the project concrete: “The idea of ’Dante Energia’ is beautiful and the boys of the ‘Liceo Artistico Ripetta’ are good, thinking of this intense and mysterious painter, a pupil of Giotto, to whom the portrait of Dante is attributed, Puccio Capanna. Boys who are working with Professor Angelini on a ‘digital island’, where electric vehicles can be moved, from scooters to bicycles. The stations that supply energy have been designed with great wisdom. A simple, but inspired design for non-polluting vehicles. The idea is certainly linked to the future and I hope to be able to use some … who knows, perhaps by the Mayor of Rome . Best wishes to the young people of the ‘Liceo Artistico Ripetta’ “. The students, in this project, were coordinated by professors Beatrice Angelini, Luciano Fabale and Gilberto Di Benedetto who supported the students along the way. which could evolve into the birth of a start-up. “The mission we have set ourselves is to stimulate the use of non-polluting vehicles as much as possible by giving the possibility, through these eco-technological islands, to give energy to green vehicles – tells Adnkronos the spokesperson of the V Cd class, Perla Troncone – Each island will also be equipped with a fountain that will supply micro-filtered water. While the columns inspired by Puccio Capanna’s Dante will also be used to recharge computers and mobile phones. After graduation we would like to create a start-up. We young people are the first to live in the world of tomorrow and we trust in our Prime Minister Mario Draghi who has promised concrete funds for young people who want to work “.
