For the first Made in Italy Day, the Consulate General of New York has scheduled the event “The Italian Industrial Excellence – A talk with CIMOLAI Spa” as part of its April activities calendar. The event will feature the participation of Cimolai, an Italian company operating internationally in the design, supply, and assembly of complex steel structures. The New York Made in Italy Day will showcase the crucial – yet lesser-known – contribution of this Italian company in the construction of some of New York’s most iconic buildings, namely The Oculus, The Vessel, The Edge, The Shed, and the new Performing Arts Center. The specific objective of the event is to highlight the Italian industrial and technological expertise, which is sometimes less visible than traditional sectors. This will be achieved by focusing on the most important and original architectural works created in New York in the last two decades through collaborations between renowned architects and designers (from Calatrava to Heatherwick) and the only company capable of translating their artistic visions into sustainable steel structures. Speakers at the event will include Erica Di Giovancarlo, the new Director of ITA, Claudia Pavan, Vice President of CIMOLAI USA, and Charles Barnes, Technical Director and Principal Associate of the architecture firm DS+R Architects, which designed The Shed. The original model of this building will be on display at the Consulate during the event.
