The Intercommunal Plan

Sustainability of development, innovation and quality of life are key points around which the five municipalities have decided to articulate in a unified way a path that, enhancing the specificities and resources of each municipality, can direct towards harmonious growth, inclusive and environmentally sustainable, within a shared vision of territory. A conscious context of own resources, able to dialogue with the outside world – in particular towards the Metropolitan City – and to strengthen internal integration and cooperation networks, in the awareness that the different issues posed by the contemporary transition can be answered only by overcoming the boundaries of individual municipalities and contributing to the formation of a shared vision of sustainable development at the scale of the vast territory.
