UNIAMO LE ENERGIE (LET’S JOIN FORCES)
Turin presents the first Italian event that looks into energy mobilization. The gorgeous Parco Valentino will be the backdrop to this special event, featuring workshops, theatre performances, exhibitions, music, video screenings and installations open to the public and set up inside the grounds of the park. Drinks and DJ sessions are on offer during the evening, along with the chance to take a turn on Europe’s first ever “Sustainable Dance Floor” which is the first ever dance floor to use the energy of dance: the energy produced by the movement of people dancing is converted into electricity and visualized thanks to the floor’s lighting and to an energy meter! Also, the first leg of the “Formula Zero” hydrogen-run go-cart world championships will kick off in Turin.
The full programme with a detailed list of events can be downloaded from www.regione.piemonte.it/energia.

WHERE: Parco del Valentino and Torino Esposizioni, Torino
