The first objective of LIFE MONZA project (Methodologies fOr Noise low emission Zones introduction And management - LIFE15 ENV/ IT/000586), co-funded by the European Commission, concerns an easy-replicable method for the identification and the management of the Noise Low Emission Zones, an urban area subject to traffic restrictions, whose impacts and benefits regarding noise issues will be analyzed and tested in the pilot area of the city of Monza, located in North Italy. \nOther objectives include the monitoring and the analysis of the effects, due to the introduction of the Noise Low Emission Zone, on air quality improvement and on the wellbeing conditions of the citizens in pilot area, the identification of the type of interventions that can induce positive effects, such as those relating to the mobility management and the adoption of low-noise pavements, and the active involvement of the people in the definition of a more sustainable lifestyle.\nThe project started in September 2016 and all actions are in progress.
