Don't you think that it's time to get a new way, droog?! We're still living in polluting houses, and there are cities that waste big, big, big amount of energy. Sustainable development and renewable energies are the way!

Isn't your gulliver wondering if it's possible to transform an already built anti-ecological domy in a zero energy building? Don't you want to find out the technologies that can make this possible? Yes?!

Real horrorshow! Then it's time get out from the biblio, take a break from your rabbitting jeenzny and fly to the city of Naples! The amazing city in the south of Italy, sorrounded by the wonderful landscape of the Vesuvius and the islands of Capri and Ischia, not far from the starry city of Pompei. The only place where you can eat the real pizza napoletana, peet a lot of limoncello and discover the hospitality of the Neapolitan people!
