he coronavirus pandemic we have been experiencing for two years has reshaped the image we had of our private spaces, our homes, our gardens and led us to reclaim and use them like never before. Since last spring, more and more Italians felt the desire – and the need – to give new life to their gardens (and their terraces, roofs, and interiors) by introducing a swimming pool: water is strongly perceived as an element of health and well-being, a tem-

ple of relaxation and a symbol of fun. This kind of made up for the impossibility to go to public facilities and created many available safe oases for when it’s not possible to get away from home for the summer holidays. Consequentially, small gardens were converted into “outdoor living rooms”, residential pools became gyms for water yoga or water gymnastics, the need to air rooms removed the barriers between indoors and outdoors, and sunbathing

now takes place in the safety of private terraces rather than among other people in a park. At the same time, together with the increase of new pools in Italy (some Italian companies report a 30-50% increase in turnover), there has been a growth in their modernisation and renovation, especially for private pools and private pools for public use. Italian pools are especially outdated: many pools are out of standard and/or need improvement, not only aesthetically, but

« Water is strongly perceived as an element of health and well-being, a temple of relaxation and a symbol of fun »

also in terms of engineering. For this reason, taking advantage of the stalemate imposed by the regulations to prevent the spread of Covid-19, many private individuals and managers of hotels, accommodation facilities, resorts and public facilities decided to upgrade their swimming pools, improving their safety, efficiency and – of course – aesthetics. Thanks to government bonuses, many have also opted for energy and water efficiency interventions to lighten the

consumption of resources and the amount of bills, all with a green perspective that is increasingly felt in our country. Having said that, what are the main features currently required by the Italian pool market? Let's see them together! ITALIAN STYLE Made in Italy knows no bounds: thanks to their skills and experience, Italian pool designers and manufacturers cre5

ate incredibly beautiful and unique scenarios, meeting the tastes and needs of both private and public customers. The Italian swimming pool park welcomes projects of any type, varying from those characterized by an urban feel to the purest and most natural ones, to complex geometric shapes or minimal lines. The elements used – glass, metal, wood, concrete, resin, etc. – combine harmoniously with each other to create high quality pools with great aesthetic impact. Three are the key concepts: design, technolo-

gy and respect for the environment and nature. The Italian pool and spa Industry boasts beautiful water areas both comfortable and super-equipped, enriched with accessories for relaxation and wellness, as well as purely hitech details often combined with the use of natural materials. Among the most recurring elements, the suggestive infinity edge, the insertion of one or more glass or acrylic walls, the stone and wooden surfaces, the underwater LED lighting, the hydromassage areas, water-saving and en-

ergy systems, and safety devices. What's more, the management of the pool no longer weighs heavily on the owner. On the contrary, it's simple and smart thanks to home automation, which, with a wide range of automated solutions, facilitates maintenance and ordinary “administration” of the pool. Particularly, glass is an undisputed protagonist in the Italian pool industry when it comes to scenographic effects, always maintaining a refined and modern elegance that strikes straight to the heart of the observer. By using ↓↓ [ Doc. Punto Blu - Photo Michele Iannotti ]

glass for the walls or the floor, the pool gains a considerable architectural and functional value. And let’s not forget another very relevant ally for transparency in the pool: the acrylic, a material that's experiencing ever-increasing popularity in this sector. Although it needs more accurate and careful maintenance, acrylic allows creating the most extreme shapes and innovative patterns, with the designer imagination as the only limit. Light is another fundamental element, one of the most versatile and exciting architectural forms that can be molded, set up and changed: for this reason, designers love it and use it to give pools a truly unique touch. From underwater RGB LEDs, which light up water with iridescent shades, to poolside lights, whose combinations create fantastic and captivating atmospheres or romantic and delicate ones depending on the context and the moment. The Italian pool Industry is also moving towards soft geometries, smooth lines, and a strong presence of sand, wood, or vegetation. Natural and pure, with local and environmentally-sustainable materials: this is the identikit of a pool that’s more and more requested. A mountain lake or pebbled shore, a pool inspired by the countryside, that merges seamlessly with the outdoor area and the outdoor beauty. 7

“GREEN”, PLEASE Eco-sustainability is a central focus. Considered that swimming pools can be eco-sustainable, in Italy Piscine Oggi magazine and ForumPiscine - International Pool and Spa Expo & Congress presented the Self-sufficient Pool, a special project based on a perfectly functioning 1:1 scale installation of an eco-friendly, zero-impact swimming pool, that has been the masterpiece of 2020 edition of the Salon. In short, the demonstration of how technology, automation, sustainability, self-sufficiency can – and must – coexist together in the aquatic system, a model that's not only a construction methodology but a sum of technical devices and good practices united under an avant-garde concept that’s necessary in an age when fresh and clean water is becoming an increasingly rare commodity. Sustainability and zero impact are two more and more important concepts for Italian designers. One of the most recent examples of this trend is in Verona, where a 50,000 square metres disused area will benefit from a redevelopment project leading to the creation of a sports and leisure centre of about 8,000 square metres, the Platys Center. The project, by Magnoli&Partners, an architecture firm of the Edison energy ↓↓ [ Doc. SYS Piscine - Photo Clara Azenoni ]

group, immediately stood out for its strong eco-sustainable connotation, translated into a plan for urban and human regeneration where aesthetics combines with ethics with a view to eco-literacy. The Platys Center, whose design has been awarded the Green Building Council certification (granted to a sports and leisure centre for the first time in Europe) will be classified as a nZEB structure, an acronym for Nearly Zero Energy Building used to indicate highly efficient buildings that require an extremely small amount of energy to operate. These two “awards” were gained by a project that’s perfectly in line with Verona’s need to cut energy consumption and reduce both pollution and carbon dioxide emissions, in order to make the urban environment healthier and fight against energy poverty. 9

LET’S HAVE FUN! An especially popular new trend in the Italian private sector is the inclusion of slides, showers and devices that transform the swimming pool into a sort of personal water park. In public centres, the “adventure” dimension is very popular, often including rivers, torrents to be sailed up with rubber dinghies, more or less daring slides, water blades and waterfalls, which transform a pool into a water park without affecting the entrance fee too much. The general impoverishment caused by 2008 economic crisis and, recently, the financial crisis generated by the Covid-19 pandemic led many families, with less money and more uncertain professional prospects, to change their definition of holi-

days, aiming at low-cost experiences. The same trend, although on a smaller scale, has occurred in the residential swimming pool sector: more and more private individuals want to add a little exercise, for the health of the body and the enjoyment of the mind. Similarly, there are people who prefer to convert their swimming pool into a gymnasium, also taking into account the coronavirus restrictions: this is

why they choose elements that allow them to do sport in the water, from aquabikes to underwater treadmills, up to devices for swimming with a current. Finally, there is an increasing demand for waterfalls, spouts, geysers and hydromassage areas: apart from livening up the pool area, these elements are extremely useful allies for well-being and relaxation. 11

KEY WORD: SAFETY No device can ever replace a human being. However, devices might help to ensure that there is constant control in the pool and intervene and prevent fatal accidents. For this reason, more and more private pool owners and managers of public facilities decide to provide their pools with safety devices. Underwater alarms, in particular, are considered to be very effective in preventing accidental drowning, especially in combination with a barrier that keeps children from entering the water without supervision. While a cover is necessary to prevent accidental falls when the pool is

not in use, wearable water wings are becoming increasingly popular, especially in order to protect younger swimmers. Safety outside the pool is also taken into account by installing anti-slip and anti-trauma floors, which are very useful for reducing the number of accidents linked to the presence of water on surfaces that become slippery. Finally, circulation pumps equipped with a safety device capable of disabling the pump's suction capacity within a few seconds and immediately releasing a trapped body or object are becoming increasingly common. ↑↑↓

« Decorating the area around a swimming pool is like decorating a living room or a dining room: you need taste, an eye and above all a good overall view »

DECORATING WITH STYLE As stated before, the pandemic we are currently living has reshaped our private spaces and gardens. For this reason, more attention is being paid to the furnishing of these spaces and, of course, of the poolside. The choice is increasingly falling on sofas in resistant yet fashionable fabrics, carpets that withstand poolside constant humidity and beautiful wooden tables designed to withstand the weather. And then the materials: wood, glass, plexiglass, stone, metals. Decorating the area around a swimming pool is like decorating a living room or a dining room: you need taste, an eye and above all a good overall view. By combining design and materials, our outdoor environment can take on the character we want: a shabby chic corner, with pastel colours and soft curves, with a hint of Art Nouveau and a touch of classic country taste, a more minimalist connotation, with clean lines, uniform shades and a studied contrast between materials or even a romantic atmosphere, with floral patterns, sweet combinations of canvas and wood, and maybe some floating lamps. And since taking a shower is a good rule before entering a pool, this accessory also becomes a stylish detail: made of steel or wood, with a built-in foot washbasin or eco-friendly, in all shapes and/or sizes, the shower is a must-have that washes all thoughts away before a healthy dive into the pool.

refabricated pools evolved over time and today represent an economical solution that is, at the same time, versatile and aesthetically appealing. Thanks to the latest technological innovations, an untrained eye might not even notice any difference between a “classic” pool and a prefabricated one. Increasingly well-equipped, with more attention to details and finishes and more and more care-

fully and elegantly integrated into the surrounding area, prefabricated pools are the best solution for those who cannot have a pool built on site. Since they are produced in-house and then assembled on-site, these pools can be easily transported, not to mention the considerable advantage of a significantly reduced completion time, up to a few days. Panels can be made of various materials: metal,

ave the date: from 23 to 25 February 2022, at Hall 19 of the Bologna Fair District, the international aquatic industry meets to take stock of the situation. The thirteenth edition of ForumPiscine – International Pool & Spa Expo and Congress will be a chance, for the swimming pool and spa industry, to give life to a shared relaunch platform, to take the floor and define common requests together, a starting point for overcoming the Covid-19 emergency and the subsequent economic crisis. The leading com-


IPT  2021-2022

panies of the sector, both in Italy and elsewhere, will present products, technologies, accessories and solutions for building, renovating, maintaining and managing swimming pools, from private pools to public swimming facilities of all sizes (from large swimming pools to the pools of spas, sports centres and fitness clubs). In short, it will be an opportunity to meet and talk, to discuss the latest regulations and reformations, and meet new operators and buyers.

WATER CULTURE IN THE POST-PANDEMIC AGE ForumPiscine Congress 2022 – with free admittance – will deal with managerial and environmental sustainability, innovation and research, investments and savings, rules and sports regulations, addressing the whole supply chain of a market that, after the long closure imposed by the pandemic, is polarized between an increase in demand and the difficulties faced by pool and aquatic facility managers in restarting their activities at full capacity. Therefore, ForumPiscine 2022 will be a great opportunity for companies and players to make a fresh start in the challenging scenario created by the long health emergency. The three days will see important initiatives and projects aimed at providing actual support to the sector, in close collaboration with institutional partners such as FIN – the Italian Swimming Federation, ENEA – the Italian National Agency for Energy Efficiency and Economic Development and ICS – the Italian Institute for Sports Credit, academic institutions such as the University of Rome Foro Italico, leading companies in the water sector and a network of new players known thanks to initiatives aimed at supporting the sector organised in these difficult past months. Also worth emphasising is the participation of UNPISI (the Italian Association of Prevention Technicians in the Environment and

« ForumPiscine is an opportunity to meet new operators and buyers, to discuss the latest regulations, to discover the innovations »

Workplaces), whose collaboration with ForumPiscine has a main clear purpose: to contribute to a paradigm shift that will allow managers of public and private pools for collective use to interact positively with prevention technicians who inspect facilities, leading to a virtuous synergy between these two realities that, until today, looked at each other with suspicion. All this in the common interest of developing effective and efficient management practices for the benefit of users. 27

THE SPECIAL PROJECT “LABORATORY POOL” ForumPiscine 2022 will also feature an unprecedented installation dedicated to the culture of water in its broadest meaning, the Laboratory Pool, a multifunctional treatment scientific swimming pool. Among the main novelties of ForumPiscine 2022, indeed, is the Project “Educational” dedicated to the analysis of water for recreational use (even in times of pandemic): the Laboratory Pool will be a pool equipped with an open system of water treatment and filtration in compliance with current regulations, an

equipped area that will host theoretical and practical moments of water analysis and testing, as well as simulations and live shows for companies. This special project was developed by ForumPiscine in collaboration with the Laboratory of Epidemiology and Biotechnology of the University of Rome “Foro Italico” and with the participation of UNPISI. The Laboratory Pool will be a great opportunity for discussion and education with a view to the improvement of the entire sector.

The Italian Pool Award strives to recognize and celebrate the pools that em­body a model of a well-designed and well-built facility, with innovative technological content, respect for the environ­ment, an accurate design, and care to water and/ or energy savings. A jury of professionals will carefully evaluate the candidates for each of these categories: residential pools (indoor and outdoor), commercial pools (indoor and out­door), and bio-pools. During ForumPiscine 2022,

ITT, a leading international group established in Italy in 1969, is a pioneer in the production and development of highly innovative solutions for the transfer of fluids for domestic, professional and industrial applications. For over 50 years, FITT has been developing complete thermoplastic pipelines and systems for the transport of liquid, gaseous and solid substances, with products

at the forefront of technology, design and sustainability. FITT B-Active Flex and FITT B-Active Rigid, are the top products of FITT Pool&SPA Solutions, business-unit of FITT which develops complete solutions and produces hoses and pipes, fittings and accessories for water circulation, pool and Spas cleaning.

PVC-A with a 3-layer structure

FITT B-Active Flex is the flexible PVC spiral hose even more resistant to mechanical stresses thanks to the EVO TECH innovation. The EVO TECH innovation further strengthens the film covering the rigid spiral (Spiral Protection Barrier technology) and makes the hose 6 times more resistant to cracking than other hoses - according to EN ISO 3994. The hose is then protected whilst preserving its high flexibility and narrow bending radius characteristics. FITT B-Active Flex with inner anti-chlorine protective film (Chlorine Defence System patent), and rigid anti-crushing PVC spiral reinforcement (D-Shape patent) is ideal for embedded pools and SPAs. ↑

FITT B-Active Rigid has been manufactured by using the Shock Wave technology, which ensures its shock-resistance even at low temperatures (down to -10 °C). It is made of PVC-A and has a 3-layer structure that makes it corrosion-proof and resistant to soil pollutants. This facilitates its installation and reduces the accidental damages that may be caused by transportation or handling in the building site. To create a safe hydraulic circuit, FITT B-Active Rigid can be connected to FITT B-Active Flex. ↑

FITT is always looking for new technologies to make its products everyday better and more sustainable than those of yesterday. For some years, FITT has in fact been implementing a product development strategy based on eco-design lines that has taken two different directions: on one side the search for recyclable materials, thanks to an internal production chain based on zero production waste. On the other side, FITT is also developing products using innovative materials, in which better performance levels are associated with a lower use of raw materials and maxi-

mum compatibility of components during disposal. FITT’s eco-sustainable approach is reflected both in the production processes and in the products, and it involves the 3 main principles of eco-design: reduce, reuse and recycle.
