Which image Ferrara wants to give to the turists when they get off from the train and they walk through the exit door of the station?
A quick look to the left puts them immediately in front of an obsolete reality of a stacking of bicycles, chained one above the other with no way out.
Perhaps there would be a need for a better icon that goes to the city to identify what is actually described and make it more functional exchange between public transport and cycling. Then allow the visitor to be able to rent a bike and citizens to be able to stop the bike in a more secure and sheltered from the rain. Showing that Ferrara is trying to create a sustainable urban devoted increasing use of the bicycle, but at the same time to be able to admit in an orderly manner within a structure.
