Landscape Metropolis is a strategic vision based on the principle of enhancing landscape as an infrastructure. This vision is feasible on territories through the optimisation of existing land-paths and water-ways.

Moving every day without private vehicles
Cycle tracks, waterways, roads, railway sections make up the infrastructural network of a landscape within which to move by exploiting innovative technologies for transport and optimising travel timings: bicycles, boats, electric buses, trains are the means to be rethought for frequent, comfortable and capillary
Positive social, economic and sustainable impact
The territorial policy of Landscape Metropolis constitutes an indispensable premise for a change of cultural paradigm: moving in a landscape-infrastructure means laying the foundations for a recovery of fragile areas, with different implications of scale: regeneration of places, enhancement of heritage, environmental defence, economic reboot and social inclusion are just some of the achievable scenarios.
Innovation with the territory for the territory
Landscape Metropolis works with municipalities, public authorities and public and private organisations, on projects focused on territorial regeneration, management of intermodal systems, potential markets of e-
bikes and new generation boats, and tourist variations of a system designed for citizens and development of new services and of private and community structures.
The strategic vision of Landscape Metropolis takes concrete form through a series of coherent and systemic actions. The pilot-projects can be of a physical character, as well as IT, communicative or participatory nature and are implemented within a framework of initiatives of regional, national and international relevance.

Partners and supporters
A network of partners for a sustainable mobility network
In parallel with the development and testing of the pilot-projects, it becomes necessary to direct people to the use of sustainable and advantageous mobility, through targeted campaigns of granular, creative, participatory and involving awareness (citizens, students), in line with successful experiences and existing interactive systems. Landscape Metropolis works for a strategic interaction with institutional planning through participatory methods, in order to pursue collective well-being, environmental safeguard and enhancement, economic recovery, tourism development on a territorial scale.
