With less motorized traffic and more bikes in the streets in general throughout 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic, a field of possibilities opened for many larger cities. For example, in the Italian city of Milan, a series of pop-up, temporary cycle lanes appeared as part of a system called tactical urbanism, designed to instigate long-term change via short-term action. As in other European countries, the so-called ‘soft mobility’ has been booming across Italy in the past two years. The government reacted, for example, by enacting the Mobility Bonus, meant to offer subsidies of up to 500 euro to citizens wanting to buy a bike or an e-scooter. But there are still issues to work out as our gallery below can testify.
