Subject: Cities without cars
Wonderful !!!!

Yesterday in many Italian city car traffic was stopped for the whole of the day because pollution. It was wonderful to walk in the town center without cars (just public transports and emergency services). It was so strange to see Milan without the normal traffic. Wonderful!!! :)) The Milan council organized street concerts and free tour in museums. :)

This stop of traffic involved many other cities in Italy (Rome, Florence, Naples and Turin too) and the Italian Environment Department has decided to extend this stop for the next Sundays until March. It is a wonderful chance for tourist enjoy a lovely city like Florence or Rome without traffic and congestion (Venice hasn't this problem obviously!), despite this decision was not take for tourists enjoying but because pollution. ;) Someone out the list knows if it happen also in other countries and cities ? Ciao, Marco in Milan full of traffic today :(
