Trees and the environment, but also air, water, waste and mobility: the latest Urban Ecosystem report created by Legambiente and Ambiente Italia with Il Sole 24 ore has been published, which draws up the ranking of the most (or less) green Italian cities.
18 parameters are being examined to provide a snapshot of the green performances of 105 Italian cities.
The general classification is led by Bolzano, followed by nearby Trento and in third place by Belluno. The last position is instead of the city of Catania.
The report also takes into consideration the availability of urban green areas (estimated in square meters per inhabitant). In this case it is Trento that achieves the best result (396 m2 per inhabitant), then Rieti (341) and Sondrio (300). Last place for Crotone, with just 3 square meters per inhabitant.
In the green field, the ranking also analyzes the quantity of trees present in public areas. Cuneo wins with 205 trees per 100 inhabitants, followed by Modena (114) and Brescia (112).
What about the larger cities? Milan reaches the thirtieth position in the general classification, making it greener than Turin (81st place), Rome (86th) and Naples (91st).
