Urban Sprouts is the name of the innovative and eco-sustainable Smart Green Parking project by FS PARK SpA, a company of the Ferrovie dello Stato Italiane group, complete with a latest generation cycle and micro-mobility system. The project completely overturns the classic scheme of the now obsolete city car parks. Parking changes its philosophy: it “brings forth” a new experience of urban connection in harmony with nature. From today, parking areas become real energy HUBS and urban parks with flower beds, Paulownia trees (the plant that absorbs the most CO2 in the world), draining floors that favor the absorption of rainwater and the growth of grassy surfaces, photovoltaic shelters that collect water for irrigation, smart urban furniture in interconnected floral style that produce energy from the sun and wind for their own needs. Furthermore, a system of Smart Kiosks, digital information points allows access to postal services, registry services, telemedicine, up to the tourist offers of our cities.
