Potential of cycling along the Po River between Venice and Turin to be unveiled at conference on May 11

Piemonte, Lombardia, Emilia-Romagna and Veneto are the four regions in Northern Italy where the Po River calmly flows before pouring into the Adriatic sea. A 679 km long route could be created on riverbanks. This would offer an exceptional connection between art cities such as Venice, Ferrara, Mantova, Sabbioneta, Cremona, Pavia, Valenza, Casale Monferrato, Turin. The cycling route is partly already existent though new stretches should be made safe for cyclists.

The project is ambitious but the route holds the potential to become the longest cycle route in Southern Europe. Experts, decision makers and urban planners will debate on challanges, ideas, and commitments on May 11 at the Polytechnic of Milan, Piazza Leonardo da Vinci 32, Milan.
