Eurotram 7010 is stopping at traffic light in viale Tibaldi (interchange with trolleybuses 90 and 91) waiting to turn in piazza Bibbiena where once there was the southern terminus of the old route 2 replaced by bus Z, then 65, on November 11th 1957. Now, after 56 years of bus service, this corridor has come back to the trams. Photo © Alessio Pedretti.
