1001VelaCup 2012

The 1001Vela Cup is a sailing trophy dedicated to Innovation and Sustainability in the nautical design.


The competition has been planned by architects Paolo Procesi and Massimo Paperini since 2005 and involves several Italian universities, like RomaTre and Palermo.


Indeed, Palermo hosted the 2012 edition, which created a new brand of projects. After sailing boats made with 100% of eco-compatible materials, a new class of power boats with solar engines has been introduced this year.


A great challenge for students, allowing them to test their projects for real.

This video is about the final exhibition hosted in September by the Acquario Romano, house of the Architects’ Association of Rome.


Some boats and several projects have been shown to an interested audience of students, professionals and tourists.
