The project aims to articulate squares, public green areas and main facilities of the Esquilino district through the organization of its mobility.
The proposal extends and improves the public transport local routes, the pedestrian axis and the bicycle lanes. This network is addressed to integrate both the district inhabitants and the many tourists who visit this part of Rome. The objective is pursued through two main strategies:
1. The pedestrianization of the axis formed by the streets Via Carlo Alberto, Via Conte Verde and Via Santa Croce in Gerusalemme. This is the backbone of the district and one of the main urban layouts created by the Pope Sixto V at the end of the XVI century.
2. The creation of a soft network of public mobility with a light rail surface “La Circolare Vittorio”, which, with 4,5 Km connects all major points of the neighborhood and reuse for the most part of his alignment the existing infrastructure and the stops over its path.
