Le Albere is the newly redesigned neighborhood by Renzo Piano facing MUSE building, the news Museum of Science of Trento. This area of Trento, close to river Adige, back in the days was used as industrial site for Michelin company, the famous tire manufactory. When the company shut-down its operation quarters in 1997, the site remained neglected. Renzo Piano project, the first and most important redevelopment initiative ever undertaken in Trentino, was intended to re-qualify the site and bring it to new life, as well as to reconnect the city to its river. The driving idea was to endow the new generation with an A-level urban culture and architecture, and create a new pole close to the historical city center though dedicated to green and water.

The idea of realizing a TEDx event inside this new neighborhood is tied to the birth of this ‘bridge’, this connection between Trento ‘s past and future. It is an unparalleled occasion to draw attention on this new pulsing city pole.
