CASCINE/NOVOLI/LE PIAGGE DISTRICT INSIGHTS
An integrated strategy aiming at implementing the Smart City Plan in a smart district to be replicated and scaled up at metropolitan level. The area has been selected because of:
- Mix of uses: industrial settlements dismissed (ex Fiat, Manifattura Tabacchi) and tertiary activities (University campus, Justice Court, Merca¬rfir wholesale chain market, …)
- residential area: 5000 m2 constructed area/6000 buildings
- Novoli urban park close to Cascine, the biggest park of the city
- Relevance for the mobility sector: city’s new entrance, transport infrastructures (airport, stations, highway, tramlines under construction, mix mode parking lots, bike paths, …).
Towards an eco district: taking care of the environment and to city users thanks to the innovation. The process will be implemented integrating the three technological areas (energy, e- mobility and ICT) exploiting synergies.
