A suspended walkway with wing-profile aerodynamic appendices has been introduced in the new Park surrounding the Bilancino artificial lake. The large dimensions required a special focus on the effect of wind. To solve all issues, a test was performed in a Wind Tunnel at Milan Polytechnic university. The result is truly majestic and it confirms the giant leaps made by mankind in the technical field.
