This book tells the story of the VENTO project, a cycling route from Venice (VENezia) to Turin (TOrino) running along the River Po. A new cultural paradigm to live differently in open spaces and the ways in which they change. A project of reanimating a landscape that is capable of offering new employment and economic diversification for the sustainable development of the country’s inland areas.
Accompanied by illustrations by Valerio Vidali and numerous infographics, the book discusses VENTO’s gentle revolution that is pedalling its way through the landscape. From technical criteria for minimising risks to the important question of
costs and economic repercussions, from the untapped potential of a rich cultural heritage and landscape to an analysis of works needed to complete the project, each aspect is dealt with and put into perspective with a certain sense of pragmatism and concrete idealism to ensure that this project is no longer just a ‘what if.’
