Rome is the capital of Italy and of the homonymous metropolitan city. With 2.9 million residents, it is Italy’s largest municipality. The city of Rome is composed of 15 boroughs, each of them with more than 100.000 inhabitants, while its metropolitan area is composed of 120 municipalities, and counts 4.4 million inhabitants. The economic sector is characterised by ICT, retail and professional activities, often linked to tourism. 15 million tourists visit the city annually. Rome is an urban node of the Scan-Med corridor which includes the high-speed train Termini and Tiburtina stations as well as the Ostiense node, and the external road ring of the city managed by the national road authority. The Rome SUMP, including a logistic plan, was adopted in August 2019 and is supported by a 15-year national plan for implementation. All Living Labs will engage in knowledge exchange and replication activities with Rome to learn from on-going cocreation activities of the Rome Logistic Living Lab (which is coordinated by the TRELab Transport Research Lab of Roma Tre University) and the mobility managers network to promote a modal shift and gather valuable data. Rome will have as its test site the area surrounding the main public transport nodes and linked to the TEN-T network (for instance S.Paolo Ostiense), and will replicate solutions related to active modes of transport, and measures that favour sustainable freight mobility (small warehouses for goods or logistic services and cargo bikes for local delivery).
