Traffic Advisory, From Rome to the North End: Life without driving
*An email notification was sent on May 12th stating this event is occuring on an incorrect day, the correct date for this event is Friday, May 30th at 6 pm*
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.
The Traffic Advisory speaker series is part of Overhaul: The 2013-2014 Transportation Series, sponsored by the Barr Foundation and organized by the Boston Society of Architects and the Boston Foundation for Architecture, is bringing together leaders from across North America and Europe to talk to us about the role that 21st century transportation can and should play in adapting to a new period of transformative change.
