Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan of Venice
Systematica is awarded the SUMP (Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan) 2020 -2030 of the City of Venice, as part of an extended consortium including TPS Pro, as Team Leader, Airis, Arch. Matteo Scamporrino and Arch. Luca di Figlia.
This assignment represents a great opportunity to improve mobility conditions in one of the most challenging urban agglomerations in the World with the aim to:
– ensure a sustainable development plan;
– address short-and-long-term implementation plans; and,
– improve public transport and collective transit modes.
The SUMP is a strategic tool recognized by the European Commission for ensuring the overall transport and environmental sustainability in 10 year-time horizon and, for Venice, it represents a crucial opportunity to reinforce the multi-layered public transport system, encourage active mobility, set an effective framework for smart solutions and multi-modal innovative operational schemes, and, as a result, reduce the environmental footprint of transport sector and improve the quality of urban areas.
The City of Venice is by far one of the most popular touristic destinations of Europe, an iconic Italian city, often referred to as the most beautiful city in the world, visited by more than 10 million tourists every year. The “City of Canals”, virtually unchanged for more than 600 years and particularly rich of museums and historical buildings of great artistic and cultural importance, is unlike any other city in the world.
