2019 was the hottest year in the past 200 years. It is no coincidence that Magazine Time voted Greta Thunberg as the person of the year. So among the intentions for the new year there is certainly that of spreading green initiatives. Something is being done but very slowly. In Italy, the government has introduced incentives for the purchase of electric cars. I have lived in Italy for many year and when I was a child I witnessed dozens of snows a year. This year I still don’t see a snowflake. It is hoped that it was only a bad year, although the evidence of climate change, albeit minimal, is certain.

Among the Italian political initiatives there is also that of the recognition of electric kick scooter as vehicles equivalent to bicycles. Electric kick scooters are in fact increasingly used by an increasing number of people.
