Valentina Sumini, as designated Ambassador of Italian Design in the World 2021,  will be  be keynote speaker at 160th Anniversary of collaboration between Italy and United Stated at Italian Embassy in Washington D.C. on July 7th. The event is the inauguration of the Italian Design Day 2021.

Mankind is entering a posthumanism era in which the human-machine interaction will play a key role not only to expand human performances but also to solve for adaptability and sustainability. Indeed, Space is the most harsh environment that we can think of and is absolutely unfit for humans. 

In her talk she will feature the projects SpaceHuman 2.0 and Tidmarsh Living Observatory portal developed within her space architecture research at MIT Media Lab  Space Exploration Initiative and Responsive Environments.
