Date: 11th October 2021

Place: Faenza, Italy

From the 8th till 14th of October 2021, took place the workshop “Faenza energy days: energy of the territory for the territory” (
In this framework, before the conference “Future investments for the energy transition of Romagna Faentina”, the 11th of October 2021, an official visit of the ENEA-TEMAF Laboratory was arranged. This visit was attended by the president of ENEA Eng. G. Dialuce, and some exponents of the Municipality of Faenza, the Emilia Romagna Region and the Italian Parliament.
During the visit, the 3DMPWIRE research project was presented, together with the other Italian and European projects in which ENEA-TEMAF is involved.
