The area is also connected to the capital and to all points of interest by a system of cycle and pedestrian paths.
The area consists of two sections with buildable areas of approximately 10,000 and 16,800 m2.
With regard to the silver economy, there are large margins of growth not only because the elderly population is significantly increasing but also because they have a high purchasing power.
In the metropolitan area of Bologna, the elderly numbered around 250,000 in 2018 and are expected to reach 300,000 by 2033 (Statistics Office of the municipality of Bologna).
In addition, in Italy the elderly have an average wealth that is 13.5% higher than the national average (Istat).
