Saturday was the big day. We broke the piñata on the Friday night to start the ceremony, opened our doors to the public, and the UNIDEE in progress weekend was under-way.
A day full of speed dating, conferences, performances, workshops, video projections and parties kept the residents and UNIDEE staff busy (to say the least), and we topped it off with aperitivo, live music and Menabrea. A truly fantastic day.
