Bologna City of Knowledge is a strategic project that includes the regeneration of many areas in the northwest quadrant of Bologna, the establishment of strategic hubs (Big-Data Technopole, Research Center, and University), and is located along the Bologna railway belt, which will become the connecting element of all these polarities. Several regeneration areas with different intended uses are located along the Via Stalingrado axis. To the west, there are: the Big-Data Technopole, an intervention led by the Emilia Romagna Region among other actors, for the settlement of an international level research and computer center, as well as advanced tertiary activities and business incubators; the former Caserma Sani, the former Samp and Casaralta factories. There are several disused areas along the Stalingrado axis with different sizes, potential uses, and ownership. One of these areas is the Ex Officine Casaralta , which covers an area of more than 50,000 sqm and could be repurposed for commercial and office use. The Ex Casema Sani, with a land area of over 105,000 sqm, has potential to host a mix of functions, including residential, office, hotel, commercial, social, health facilities, public spaces, and facilities. The Ex Fabbrica Samp, which is over 20,000 sqm, could also be regenerated for different purposes. The General Urban Plan allows for temporary use of the existing buildings, their renovation, or larger urban transformations. The regeneration areas (many of which, but not all, owned by Bologna Fiere) are mainly concentrated in three sectors: ● Northwest sector with respect to the current fair district beyond the Bologna railway belt and up to the ring road: these are large areas mainly owned by Bologna Fiere, partially urbanized and partially greenfields defined as areas for potential development in the urban strategies of the Municipality of Bologna, with the possibility to densify and to build a new mixed-use urban area, including a large urban public park, as well as the expansion of exhibition facilities; ● West sector, between the current fair district and via Stalingrado, mainly regeneration of a productive fabric for new advanced tertiary functions as well as mixed use with temporary residences; ● Southwest sector overlooking the square of the main entrance and originally occupied by the Ex Borsa Merci and parking lots, it is available for hotellerie, recreational and commercial functions.

The area, located 30 minutes' walk from the historic center and the High Speed railway station, is highly accessible from the ring road, at the north exit of the highway, and is served by several public and structured parking lots (such as the Michelino Parking). The area is affected by important public and private mobility projects:
● Firstly, the new tram line, already under construction, which will connect the Bologna High Speed railway Station with the Michelino Mobility and Exchange Center to the north, crossing via Stalingrado to the south and stopping both near the Fair and the Region;
● Then the Metrobus line or self-contained bus service whose route follows that of the tram and then continues towards the metropolitan municipalities of the northeast, outside the urban area;
● The new planned cycle paths of “Via della Conoscenza”, which will connect the neighborhoods outside the historic center of Bologna in an east-west direction;
● A possible strengthening of the railway belt with the insertion of an urban public transport service;
● Finally, the strengthening - a project already in progress - of the northern ring road.

The strategic project aims to achieve the following objectives:
● Designing a new mixed-use area that interacts with the new urban development poles (e.g. Big-Data Technopolo and Ex Caserma Sani) to originate a residential, leisure and work district served by a diffused pedestrian and cycle path network
● Creating an urban connection along the Fiera edges that activates as a city for events and recreational activities (The Space Cinema, Virtus Arena, Teatro Comunale Nouveau, Palazzo dei Congressi, Teatro EuropAuditorium, etc.) characterized by high-quality public spaces.
● Consolidating and expanding the fair and exhibition activities by opening new pavilions in the northern areas for B2C fairs and open-air events.
● Regenerating the axis of Via Stalingrado by creating active fronts, diversifying the use of the road, introducing greater flexibility of uses and safe dedicated paths for bicycles and pedestrians
● Improving accessibility and visibility of the Fiera through an enhanced public transport system, an efficient parking and exchange system, and active mobility
● Creating a sustainable and resilient system through an integrated strategy that concerns the Decarbonization, Energy, Circularity and Climate Resilience Roadmap.
