URBASOFIA is proud to report that our Director, Dr. Pietro Elisei, received the „Cup of Integrity, Good Governance and Social Responsibility”, which rewarded his entire activities to date as an urban planner, scientist and manager of major complex projects, including those in favor of capitalizing on cultural and historical heritage and supporting urban innovation in Romania.
