Happy Interlift 2015 to all. We begin by greeting our readers and the companies exhibiting at Augsburg (Germany, 13-16 October). For this special event, Elevatori is even bigger and richer in technical contents and topical subjects than ever.
“The city rises” is the title of a famous painting by Boccioni after which the seminar is named held on last 8 July in Milan, at the Federalimentare pavilion in Expo, where the topic concerning the “urban densification” was discussed (or “vertical urbanisation”). A long discussion, proposed and organised by AssoAscensori and ANACAM.
A documentary about the Ancient Rome unveils the Coliseum arena where thanks to complex stage lifts wild animals were brought to stage. A good reason to visit again the Eternal City and personally check if it is fit to accommodate the potential large number of visitors referred to in the “accessible tourism” article.
And it’s Rome again, unfortunately, the subject of another article. A few months ago, a tragic event occurred during the rescue operation of two people trapped in a lift in the underground. Bruno Ciborra retraces the accident facts (as reported by the media) and discusses about liabilities.
As regards the safety topic, there are a lot of initiatives by associations and sector operators. On the occasion of Italia Eleva (June 2015) an important tool for companies was introduced: the “Elements of risks assessment and safety management in small and medium lift companies” guide written by eng. Iotti and eng. Tattoli (see also the article with his interview).
We also keep on reporting about Expo, through the lens of the vertical transportation.
In Technics, do not miss the article about lifting platforms in wind turbines and the article about lift doors for high-rise buildings.
Finally, two important events not to be missed. The international CTBUH 2015 conference in New York, USA, 26-30 October 2015 and the second seminar about lift design and technology (2° Seminario IUAV su ascensori e architettura), IUAV University in Venice, Italy, 14th December 2015.
