Cycle paths are slow; parking lots are fast. The Cittaslow movement began in October 1999, when Paolo Saturnini, mayor of Greve-in-Chianti, a Tuscan hill town, organized a meeting with the mayors of three other municipalities (Orvieto, Bra, and Positano) to define the attributes that might characterize a citt`a lente – slow city. At their founding meeting in Orvieto, the four mayors committed themselves to a series of principles that included working toward calmer and less polluted physical environments, conserving local aesthetic traditions, and fostering local crafts, produce, and cuisine.

Consistent with the Slow City philosophy, the movement encourages the development of locally-oriented responses and actions aimed at preserving the uniqueness of a place. Slow City representatives have mentioned that each town could become known for one type of project or a set of projects and serve as a resource for other towns interested in pursuing similar efforts. The goal is to develop a “tavolo di progetti” or a table of projects, which will serve as a source of best practices. For example, the English town of Ludlow has developed expertise around farmers markets.

Nowhere has this been taken more seriously than in Europe. France, for example, has become known for what might be called slow economics: short hours, long vacations and strong government protection for jobs and industries. In 2000, the French government cut the workweek to 35 hours for employees of larger companies, allowing employers to institute weekend, evening and holiday shifts, and encouraging workers to spread out vacations (Alesina, Glaeser, & Sacerdote, 2005). Nevertheless, speed has become the dominant and controlling element of Western culture and Western economies (Gleick, 1999; Virilio, 1991).
