We are delighted to welcome Paolo Micucci, CEO of City Life, and Head of Engineering and Project Management at Generali Real Estate, who will be speaking at our Future Cities Forum this September in Venice. Paolo was instrumental in achieving the restoration and re-modelling of the Procuratie Vecchie, San Marco, where we will be holding our forum event.
He has carried out his project management role since 2018 and has held his position as CEO of CityLife since 2021.
In his current role, Paolo oversees the delivery of large CAPEX projects, implementing state of the art standardized operating models for the planning and development of new projects and promoting the Generali brand as a label of excellence for the delivery of high-quality real estate services across Europe.
Paolo joined Generali in September 2014 from Prelios, where he headed Marketing and Sales for technical services. He worked as Technical Director and Head of Project Management in Pirelli R.E. Prior to that, he spent 10 years with Arup as an Associate Director, contributing to the establishment of the Italian branch.
Paolo Micucci holds a Master in Business Administration from SDA Bocconi School of Management and a Degree in Structural Engineering from the University of Genova.
Covering an area of 366,000 square metres, CityLife is one of the most important urban redevelopment projects in Europe, a balanced mix of private and public services including a business hub, a shopping district, a residential area and a huge public park which, with its 173,000 sqm and over 2,000 trees, represents a place where one can spend free time walking and staying in contact with nature. An entirely pedestrian area, CityLife boasts a futuristic underground traffic and parking system, unique in Italy.
At the heart of CityLife is the CityLife Business & Shopping District, the three iconic business towers designed by world-famous architects Zaha Hadid, Arata Isozaki, Daniel Libeskind, and 100 shops, services and restaurants facing the public park. Two new buildings connected by a wave shaped photovoltaic roof and designed by Bjarke Ingels, will complete the skyline and bring the Business District up to 200,000 square metres gross leasable area (GLA).
CityLife residences are Class A certified, in accordance with the project's focus on environmental sustainability. The use of renewable energy sources, as well as the choice of insulating materials, ensure very low energy consumption with the utmost respect for the environment.
