Eni was again Main Partner of the fifth edition of Videocittà, a film event dedicated to the digital and environmental transition, a crucial issue for our future. The Festival of Vision, which was held at the ex Gazometro in Rome from 20 to 24 July, explored the most advanced creative forms and digital technologies of audiovisual production and proposed new visions of the future. It is an iconic site in constant transformation where Eni is in the process of rehabilitating industrial facilities and carrying out reclamation works, with the aim of making it into a large open technological district.
By hosting the event at the Complesso Ostiense, Eni confirmed its vision of an energy transition understood as a process capable of changing the paradigm of interpretation of the relationship between people and the environment, and as a radical transformation that can lay the foundations for a new, more sustainable and inclusive world.
Eni is committed to a socially just energy transition that preserves the environment and provides access to energy for all through concrete solutions. Research on magnetic confinement fusion is one of the most significant examples of Eni's contribution to this global challenge: fusion is a potential turning point in the decarbonization process that Eni is helping to bring about by participating in the development of major Italian and international projects in this field. Fusion would bring about a veritable energy revolution, because – once brought to an industrial level – it would allow large amounts of energy to be generated safely, virtually unlimitedly and with zero emissions.
This visionary approach to research, this “looking beyond the box”, was represented in the festival by the immersive experience of the "Luna Somnium" installation, a gigantic glowing sphere suspended inside the Gazometro, which became the centrepiece of an emotional journey and allowed visitors to appreciate the former industrial site in a new light.
