Comfort, safety, accessibility. These are some of the main topics of the “E2Forum (+ Elevator Escalator)” event, organized by Messe Frankfurt Italia and promoted by ANIE AssoAscensori in partnership with ANACAM and ANICA. Page 6 reports in details the event, held on last October, focusing on the contents of each session and panel discussion. The article by Professor Alessandro Greco from the University of Pavia (pg. 20), is about the tenth anniversary of the creation of the municipal Council (Pavia, Italy) on accessibility. This is very important as it is among the first experiences in the dissemination of the inclusive design: design for all.
“Accessibility” is the thematic focus of the Elevatori initiative which will be promoted among professionals of several sectors. Going beyond the lift sector (which still remains among the topics to be developed), Elevatori aims at exploring the meanings of the “accessibility” concept in order to highlight the universal issues underlying the topic (Law and Democracy). At page 36, we publish a Call for Papers - The accessible world - to invite associations, organizations, bodies, companies, etc. to submit their contribution on the matter.
In line with what mentioned in the editorial schedule of our magazine, we cover the “design software” topic. This is a consolidated working tool in many countries, the Building Information Modeling (known as BIM) is included in the usual working practice in Italy and in lift industry (see articles pg. 66 and 72). In Techniques, the article by Vittorio Mazzoni and Bruno Santarelli dedicated to the development of lift motors.
In Culture, our tribute to Umberto Eco (pg. 106). Not many knows he also wrote about lifts.
Do not miss the editorial by Giovanni Varisco, inviting to a reflection on “risk coverage”.
