The 1 June in the capital Tirana, in addition to the concert with Ermal Meta , there will be an invasion of 4.000 bikes. This is the new innovative project of the municipality of Tirana to transform the capital into a welcoming city with regard to this 'new' alternative transport for citizens.
Yesterday, the mayor of Tirana Erjon Veliaj and that of Florence, Dario Nardella, signed a cooperation agreement on the project also discussing other issues such as culture, lighting and the transport sector.
Nardella pointed out that Tirana is ready for the implementation of this project, which has been very successful in Florence as part of the 'Smart City' model. Model that Veliaj wants to propose again in Tirana:
"We want to work hard to make Tirana a smart city. We have copied the Florence project and will start with the rental bike service, a completely innovative service. The project will be launched on 1 June, then we will continue with all other projects during the year"- said Erion Veliaj.
Mayor Nardella, on the other hand, praised the progress made by the municipality of Tirana as public lighting and the ambitious green areas project, considered one of the most important projects in Europe:
"The green areas project has made great progress in Tirana. I have visited many European countries and I believe this is one of the most important projects; I see that this city is growing very fast. " - said Nardella.
Along with mayor Nardella, a delegation of Italian entrepreneurs was also present. In this sense, Veliaj stated that the number of Italian visitors is increasing exponentially:
"We are also discussing the tourism sector, we want to increase hotel service in the city with new hotels. Today we have a beautiful city that has led to increasing the number of visitors who inevitably have to stay overnight in Tirana.
In this way, thanks also to the experience of Florence that welcomes around 14 million tourists each year, we can create a new and perfect hotel service. Florence is a great example for us; I have always believed that the best twinning between cities is based on exchanges of ideas and of course business. "- stressed Veliaj.
Furthermore, the two counterparts have discussed the possibility of opening a fashion school in Tirana, so as to also favor commercial exchange between the two countries, particularly in the textile sector.
