PILOT CITY

Pomezia

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.

PILOT ACTIONS

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.
