There were we of Discoverplaces too today in Fiuggi at the conference organized by Federturismo, in collaboration with Unindustria where we talked about bike economy, investments in cycleways and a project to encourage cycling tourism entitled “Fiuggi Woodfront”.
In a global context that is increasingly looking for solutions and perspectives linked to sustainable mobility, the attention to cyclomobility also grows in Italy and the number of cities with bike hotels is growing.
The growing interest in cycling tourism and attention to issues related to environmental sustainability and respect for nature make it increasingly necessary to build itineraries that also involve peripheral locations through a system of fluent accessibility.
In order to successfully develop city cycling, it is necessary to invest first of all on safety by creating cycle lanes in appropriate locations, observing suitable quality standards that guarantee the connection between the various itineraries.
The project illustrated for the occasion by the architect Marco Mariani stems from the idea of creating a new cycle path that, taking inspiration from the examples of urban rehabilitation realized on the promenades of many cities, would help to revive the historic center in a new dimension more broad and sustainable. An intervention to reconnect existing stretches and which acts as a hub for all the surrounding territories. Let’s talk about the cycle path that from Paliano crosses Serrone, Piglio, Acuto to get to Fiuggi, along the Via Francigena, the Cesanese Wine Route.
Planning cycling for cycling means to realize that our territory is full of tracks, infrastructures, small roads that are partly used or completely abandoned and that, once recovered and enhanced, represent the ideal path for the rediscovery of the territory and of the landscape of our country.
