The City and the University of Florence are proud to welcome the wind energy community for TORQUE 2024, an official event by the European Academy of Wind Energy (EAWE).

Florence is known as the cradle of the Renaissance, with the wealth of Renaissance art and architecture that remain the city’s unique treasures. The incredible cultural movement of Renaissance transformed not only Florence but eventually the rest of Europe, influencing all aspects of life: science, philosophy, art, religion, politics, and literature.

While still looking like an open-sky museum, Florence is nowadays a modern city, named the most digital in Italy for three consecutive years, and one of the greenest European capitals.

This spirit towards beauty and innovation is part of the motivation that prompted the University of Florence – a proud member of EAWE – to bid for hosting TORQUE. Together with the Tuscany Region, the Municipality of Florence, and many other associations of the territory, we look forward to letting you enjoy a warm Tuscan hospitality.

TORQUE is also known as a conference welcoming a lot of young talented PhD students and young researchers. My personal wish for all these brilliant minds is to experiment every day in their work in wind energy the same propension towards the future, the same hunger for innovation, and the same feeling to be on the edge of something special that animated Renaissance.
