6:00pm From Rome to the North End, Without Driving at BSA Space, 290 Congress St.
Traffic Advisory is delighted to welcome Ignazio Marino, the Mayor of Rome, to mark the kick-off of the summer program. Since taking office in 2013, Mayor Marino, a daily bike commuter himself, has focused his attention on improving Rome’s transport system by pedestrianizing the most historic archaeological sites in the city. This unprecedented policy has turned Rome into a more bike-friendly place while reducing pollution levels and helping preserve ancient monuments. During his presentation, Marino will share his plan on how to make Rome a more sustainable city and articulate the broader mobility shift that is taking place in car-obsessed Italy, the home to supercar makers like Ferrari, Maserati, and Lamborghini.
