Simone d’Antonio


ANCI – National Association of Italian Municipalities

Simone d'Antonio is in charge of capitalization activities of EU funds and programs at the Italian Association of Municipalities (ANCI). In the framework of EU co-funded programs on sustainable urban development such as URBACT, Urban Innovative Actions and Urban Agenda for the EU, he supported many Italian and European cities in developing integrated action plans and innovative projects, promoting the knowledge emerged from these initiatives to a wider audience. As author of the book 'Le città sono la soluzione' (Cities are the solution, Donzelli, 2021) he explored some of the most interesting cases of civic engagement and sustainable development carried out by Italian cities: he co-authored the UIA study Skills for a Green Future in the framework of the thematic initiative on just transitions.
