Rome

This year edition is dedicated to Roma, the capital of Italy. A modern city with many challenges coming from the historical and archaeological treasures in connection with the modern problems of increased traffic, pollution, parking and the need of new mobility solutions.
According to a recent study made by Greenpeace, ‘Ranking of European Cities in Sustainable Transport’, Rome’s roads are more congested, dirtier and more dangerous than 5 years ago.
For one day, Roma will be the capital of the future smart mobility solutions as a trendsetter for Europe and the World. The AUTOBEST project is coming every year in a different big city introducing the latest trends, technologies and possibilities for meaningful real solutions. Therefore, every year edition is worth to join to be updated at the latest iterations. Having this disruptive reality in mind, we decided to open the SUMMIT to mayors, administrators and key managers of the big cities.
