Demetrio Scopelliti (Director of Urban Planning and Public Space, city of Milan) speaks with Geert Kloppenburg and Chris Bruntlett (Dutch Cycling Embassy) about the Piazze Aperte and Strate Aperte Plan that changed the streets and squares of Milan.

In the podcast they talk about:
• How introducing a ping pong table brings people together;
• How you (urban) plan for the unexpected;
• How the city of Milan built 60 kilometers of cycling track in a year.

And see a short video of the project
