Summary of the project

The project aims at promoting the daily use of bicycles in the Greco district in Milan, starting from BiG Greco inter-generation village, with its inhabitants, spaces and services. The objective is to involve the neighborhood and the city by activating intergenerational mutual aid actions related to use of the bicycle. In the frame of the inter-generation village, the idea is: to make the most of the space dedicated to bicycle storage adapting it to the needs of BiG residents and those interested in the nearby Borgo Cascina Conti; to imagine, design and implement in a participatory way local mutual aid services through the use of the bicycle; to organize promotional events on the daily use of bicycles and local actions targeting students (primary schools).
The added value of the project lies in considering the bicycle as a social resource able to create social relationships and not only an alternative mean of transport.


  • 42 inhabitants of the inter-generation village + around 300 people
