Participation 2013

The participant is committed to:

Organising a week of activities, taking into account the focal theme.
Actions relative to the theme:
Historical centre of town will be closed to car traffic and local producers' showcase organized on Sept. 21st
Carrying out a Car-Free Day event by closing one or more streets to traffic, and opening it to pedestrians, cyclists and public transport. This should preferably happen on 22 September to mark your town or city as part of World Car-Free Day.
Zone opened to residents on Car-Free Day:
The oldest part of town - San Salvatore - has been charged with heavy traffic because Sestu was lacking alternative external routes to redirect truck flow to. A new section of the orbital road is being built and citizens will have a chance of enjoying a foretaste of what San Salvatore will be like when works are over.
