Summary

Italy’s brand new cycling law marks a huge advocacy success by ECF’s Italian member organisation the Federazione Italiana Amici della Bicicletta (FIAB) as cycling officially becomes recognised as a tourism and mobility opportunity in the country. This means that cycling has become an integral part of Italy’s national, regional and local transport strategies with measures such as mandatory cycle carriage on public transport. Cycling is now a priority in Italy, setting a benchmark for neighbouring countries in the Mediterranean.

Key Deliverables / Outcomes

The goal of the 'framework law is promoting the use of bicycle as an extraordinary opportunity for tourism and everyday mobility.
