Project and workshop

"I wanna ride my bicycle" sang Freddy Mercury in Bicycle race.

In 2014 the concept was born during Vintage bike rack workshop at Roma Vintage festival, Rome’s summer hot spot for culture and entertainment in Centocelle's park.

A rack to live the city in bike. 

With the help of neighbors and artisans, dismissed ancient pipes 's 14 mt coming from near wrecking yards of via Prenestina and via Palmiro Togliatti became a comfortable and safe place for your bike.

After the workshop festival the rack was displaced at Pigneto Municipal Library to host the visitors bikes.


Do you have a bicycle but you don't know how park it?

Do you live in a building with a court? 

Perfect, with your neighbors you can self-build your share bike rack.

Soft traffic and slow mobility are the solution for environment. Think about it!
