Il Giardino Verticale del Liceo “Giovanni Keplero” di Roma (The Vertical Garden of the “Giovanni Keplero” High School of Rome)

Details

The Liceo Scientifico Giovanni Keplero di Roma is a public secondary scientific high school in Rome, Italy. In 2015 professors Antonio Vestrella, PhD and Roberto Casalini, PhD spearheaded efforts to create an Experimental Green Roof. Together with a group of 25 students, the educators at the Liceo Scientifico Giovanni Keplero completed the first vegetated roof on a school in Italy in 2016.

Their yearly team of students routinely manage and monitor the educational research green roof, and they recently added a greenwall at the entrance to the high school. Students are actively involved in both structures’ daily maintenance including cultivating; performing scientific experimentation; and the related social networking. Students sell produce in the high school and money earned at the end of the year is donated to charity.

Along with both professors and several students, the design and installation of the Liceo Scientifico Giovanni Keplero Green Wall is highlighted in the video.
