SLOW CITY

Cittaslow literally meaning ‘slow city’ is an international unity of municipalities founded in 1999 in Italy. For a city to be awarded as a slow city, the population must be below 50.000 and the application made to the country capital must return positive reviews. The applicant city must have met certain criteria on environment, infrastructure, social inclusion and urban life quality.
