E-Magazine 03 - Slow down just a bit: You are in a peaceful place
The cittaslow movement, born in Italy in the late 90s, was inspired by the Slow Food organization that tries to combat fast food culture.

The philosophy of creating a slow city is based on the idea of improving the quality of life of the people who live there. So, Cittaslow focuses on towns that promote a sustainable lifestyle free from stress and anxiety as opposed to an urban one. It supports cultural diversity and uniqueness in towns and regions.
