Urban Horticulture in Modena, Italy, 1980–2015
Modena, an average city (184,973 inhabitants) located in the north of Italy, was the first Italian city to introduce a law that recognized the social and economic role of urban allotments. The law established that retired people, or citizens aged over 55, are allowed to ask for a small garden in some dedicated peripheral areas of the city. A new law pertaining to urban horticulture, passed in July 2015, reduced the age limit, allowing people aged under 55 to ask for a urban garden. This project started in Autumn 2016.
