Abstract

The 15-minutes city is an adaptable paradigm proposed to exceed the pandemic crisis, but it imposes a transition to sustainable and fair urban mobility to enhance the connection between services and inhabitants. The reinforced links – often based on public transport or slow mobility systems - could subvert the consolidated hierarchical relationships in the city producing new proximities, especially, for the most fragile areas of current metropolitan systems. This transition needs innovative approaches in the field of urban planning, that exceed the sectoral ones, exclusively based on the mobility management or services provision. The transformations bring to a multilevel and inclusive governance, which involve different actors and stakeholders that could contribute to the improvement of the quality of built environments and contemporary habitats. In this light, the paper aims to explore the sustainable and fair urban mobility as a driver for territorial regeneration. We will critically analyse and discuss the project of a new Rapid Transit Bus that links the city centre of Bergamo to the innovative district of Dalmine financed by the NEXT-EU Funds, starting from a double point of view as consultant of the public administrations/institutions involved in the project and as inhabitants/users of the area. The axis forms a rich, dynamic but fragmented transect along the SP525 and we consider it as a testing ground for potential innovative forms of living, moving, and working the metropolitan space of Bergamo. It is one of the arterial backbones of the metropolitan area, marked by the presence of several public players and it is an innovative industrial hub, but poor in terms of quality and provision of public/green spaces. A new, effective accessibility based on public transport could impact on the social, safety and environmental profile of the area, producing opportunities to re-think its urban dimension, enhancing the interaction between public services and private facilities and boosting the transformation of private spaces. Throughout this process this scattered corridor could became a productive and inhabited ecosystem, a sort of territorial boulevard. In the conclusions, the direct observation of this process and its critical analysis will produce a set of lessons learned for the public actors and the institutions.
