Rome, August 20 - The mayor of Rome said Tuesday
his plan to ban cars from major traffic points in the center
extends to neighborhoods in the outskirts as well.
"I have an even more ambitious project," Ignazio Marino
told Italian radio.
"The city is more than the downtown area. We need to make
pedestrian-only zones in other neighborhoods, so people can
enjoy taking a stroll, shopping, and chatting, enriching the
urban decor".
Earlier this month Marino launched the first phase of a car
ban on the road leading through the Roman Forum to the
Colosseum.
Despite vocal opposition, he plans to extend the car-free
zone throughout the entire area, creating by his estimate the
biggest archeological park in the world.
In an interview with daily Corriere della Sera published
Tuesday, the mayor said the plan would also span from the
central square of Piazza Venezia to Piazza del Popolo - down
three connected streets known locally as the "trident" -
encompassing landmarks such as the Spanish Steps and the Tomb of
Augustus.
