What is VENTO Bici Tour? How is it born?

VENTO Bici Tour is much more than a usual organized tour. An entire week of events in the territories traversed by VENTO, the future touristc cycle path of over 700 km, from Venice to Turin (VEnezia – TOrino), along the riverbanks of the Po. A new way to talk about culture, conceived by the VENTO research group of DAStU (Department of Architecture and Urban Studies) of Politecnico di Milano. The tour combines research and participation, reducing the distances between scientific institutions, governments, organizations and citizens.

The idea was born in autumn 2012. The first edition of VENTO Bici Tour was held in 2013 as a workshop of itinerant planning along the VENTO path, with the purpose to explain the project directly in the involved territories: squares, town councils, university classrooms, meetings of associations, clubs on the river, farmstead yards…

For the first time, in 2017 we opened the tour to everyone: supporters of the project joined the VENTO research group, animating the cycle path that does not exist yet, but that will be reality soon. It was a success and we replied in 2018: more than 1.000 travelers have ride with us!

How many will be in 2019???
