The Italian Chamber of the Philippines, Inc. (ICCPI), in collaboration with GlobalLink-MP and Olacon Events, successfully held the Italy by Design Conference 2023 last September 21, 2023 at the SMX Convention Center, bringing together local and international architects and designers. Italy by Design Conference 2023 served as a creative platform for architects and designers to share their insights and visions for the future of design, showcasing the different perspectives of architecture between European states and Southeast Asian regions.
Among the distinguished speakers at the event was Architect Royal Pineda, the Principal Architect and CEO of ROYAL PINEDA+Architecture and Design. His enthusiasm for fusing modern design with Filipino culture and history captivated the audiences. His works are a beautiful example of how modern aesthetics may coexist with respect for nature and the rich cultural heritage of the Philippines. Architect Romolo Nati, the CEO of ItalPinas Development Corporation, added another layer of depth to the conference by shedding light on Sustainability and Green Design. Various experts in the field of design and architecture also graced the said conference to expand the audience's perspective further. Experts such as Ar.
