AD ARNUM: Strategic masterplan for sustainable mobility along the Arno river

The project was developed by some components of Urban LIFE before the establishment of the company. It is presented on these pages as a significant activity, tackled according to the founding principles of Urban LIFE.

The municipalities of Bagno a Ripoli, Fiesole, Pontassieve and Rignano sull’Arno in 2017 started the “Ad Arnum” Project for the supra-municipal design of a cycle route along the Arno valley as a sustainable mobility strategy. “Ad Arnum” was developed in view of the participation in the European Call “Urban Innovative Actions” 2017 (UIA – 2nd Call), which rewards urban innovative actions based on three themes, including Sustainable Urban Mobility.
The entire project, characterized by a strong participatory footprint, converges in one goal: to radically change the ways of using and crossing the territory, both by local users and by other “users”.
