The city for bicycles

Ferrara is a small city in northern Italy, in the misty Po Valley. I don’t know who invented (and where) the bicycle, but I know that who lives in Ferrara uses it for centuries, probably from the day after its invention. And nowadays Ferrara is known like “the city for bicycles”, very important feature, with the problem of air pollution in the cities. Of course, the flat streets, without the slightest difference in height, the small size of the city, have certainly favored its diffusion. But it was evidently not only these characteristics, because these factors can be found in other similar cities of the Po valley.

it is therefore a small mystery that every inhabitant of Ferrara (regardless of age) has a bicycle. Bicycles that you can find parked everywhere in Ferrara; bicycles that are used to go to work, to school, to go shopping; but also used to go to “important dinners”, to go to weddings, to walk the dog or, of course, to walk the children, children who immediately learn the beauty of this way of moving. Also because, according to statistics, a newborn child in Ferrara already owns a bicycle…
