The installation aims to highlight Eni’s commitment to and innovations in the field of the circular economy, offering a number of practical opportunities for moving beyond the current linear economic system.
In order to achieve this, the installation experiments with the use of an unusual construction material: fungus.
The fibrous root of the fungus is known as the mycelium and has been used here to create a series of arch-shaped architectural structures within the Botanical Garden of Brera,
each dedicated to a different Eni initiative relating to the circular economy, from energy efficiency to mobility.
