Along with the new architectural identity of the area, a key objective is to ensure complete integration with the urban context and landscape. The project will not present itself as a foreign element to the context of Metanopoli, but intends to continue and go through the innovative spirit and experimenter that had characterized the earlier buildings in different eras.

It was important to create a project that was the symbol of energy savings through clean energy sources and to resume the trial as was done earlier in office buildings built in the past in the area. By this poitn the project is characterized by the large cover that shields the underlying buildings and entirely covered with nearly 5 acres of photovoltaic panels.

This choice is to characterize the new project as a carrier of a major new political message of Eni to new sources of clean energy and a new way of working life. Energy conservation and renewable energy passes through all the elements that make up the project: the coverage, the buildings, the system of air ducts, the geothermal exchange and the tower air inlet and exhaust that take advantage of the winds prevailing.

The focus of the project represented by the cover-plate photovoltaic establishes the link between the architectural idea and technology. The focus of the project represented by the cover-plate photovoltaic establishes the link between the architectural idea and technology.
