Lucca represents a typical European town of mid to small dimensions, with common problems related to city logistics: air quality impacts – CO2 and “secondary pollutants” emissions, PM10, noise, energy consumption, etc. As well known, these aspects have serious negative effects on health and well-being of the population, in particular on the most vulnerable citizens (i.e. children, elderly people).

In Lucca, as in many other European towns, the environmental and traffic problems related to commercial fleet are emphasized in the historic area, characterized by a network with a dense grid of narrow streets and by additional constraints resulting from the presence of old and historical buildings, monuments, relevant pedestrian flows of tourists and visitors, etc. These conditions are also present, with different context and dimension in the cities of Stockholm (SE) and Zadar (HR) where the potential of transferability of the LIFE ASPIRE approach will be analysed.
