Improving well-being in buildings, in relation to energy conservation, represents a great challenge. In southern Italy a basic problemi s that of keeping buildings cool in the summer months. This problem affects not only newly-erected buildings, but also the large number of existing buildings, some of which are of historical importance. Nano-technology represents an excellent opportunity to harness the salvage of existing buildings to the living requirements of contemporary society. The use of nano-structured materials in newly-erected buildings will lead to improved performance and a considerable saving of energy. Above all, the use of nano-structured materials in existing buildings will provide the possibility of intervention in these buildings and help improve, for example, insulation or lighting, without invasive intervention and consequent damage to the building itself.
