The Biellese is a territory composed of numerous urban aggregations immersed in a green sea of forests, mountains and fields branching out over five valleys, each of which is characterized by a watercourse. These specificities give the province of Biella the characteristic of "Archipelago City." "Biella Città Arcipelago Demopratico - sustainability and creativity in action in the Biellese" is an exhibition highlighting the sustainable organisations of the Biellese region. It is a creative planning laboratory that invites organizations in the territory (associations, companies, schools, public instituions) to collaborate and actively participate in the drafting of a program of concrete actions aimed at the sustainable renaissance of the Biellese region. The Biellese, told through the sustainable actions carried out by each individual organization, is revealed to be a territory "archipelago of good practices and vitality" in ferment and headed toward sustainable prosperity. The exhibition is therefore a continuously updated device designed to always include new actors active on sustainability.
