Documents Parco Lungo Navile e Polo universitario - CNR

To the north of the historical city, near the new high-speed station, in the historic Bolognina district, major transformations are taking place that will enlarge the system of services of a metropolitan character and will help to define the new face of the whole city: the improvement of the Lungo Navile Park, the creation of the new CNRUniversity research pole and the urban regeration of the area of the former fruit and vegetable market.

The Lungo Navile Park
The project for the Lungo Navile Park proposes to create an itinerary for cyclists and pedestrians of fifteen kilometres starting from Casalecchio di Reno, passing through Bologna and reaching Castel Maggiore following the course of the Reno Canal and the Navile.
The project, which is also inserted in a more general outlook of recovery and valorisation in a tourist key of the "Bologna of waters", contemplates different actions for improvement of the system of greenery and recovery of the historicalarchitectural components.
The revival of the itinerary along the canal is the first step in an ambitious revival project that sees in the Navile and in its rich cultural and environmental heritage a reference point for the recovery and development of the surrounding urban sector.

University-CNR Navile pole
The new Navile university pole will rise in an area of about 88,000 square metres and will house the Departments of Chemistry, Pharmacy, Bio-tecnology and Astronomy, with the astronomic observatory, alongside the existing buildings of the CNR (National Research Council).
The new building compartment will include teaching structures, administrative centres, laboratories and new greenery and will easily be accessible thanks to the expansion of public transport towards this area.
