Founded during the reclamation of the Agro pontino area, during the fascist regime, Pomezia became an important economic centre of the district of Rome due to its high-grade industries. Currently it has almost 63,000 inhabitants.
Pomezia developed as a powerful industrial centre, especially in medical and pharmaceutical sectors. The territory of Pomezia extends till the beach of Torvajanica, a famous beach characterised by beautiful dunes.
In 2015 the urban waste production per capita amounted to 570.15 kg ; 23% of the total amount was separately collected.
During the Urban Agoras Citizens of Pomezia have agreed upon three top actions to pilot in their city:
- Stimulating cooperation and synergies in the reuse of waste from processing between companies in the industrial sector through awareness raising, as well as regulatory and voluntary measures.
- The city will create a Repair and Reuse Center, where refuse like bulky and electronic goods can be repaired and people can exchange goods they do not use anymore.
- It will hold a competition to collect ideas for the creation of a port equipped with small restaurants and a zero-kilometers fish market in order to regenerate the coastline.
