Italy's biggest insurer Generali has bought a stake in Ridemovi, which offers bicycle and electric scooter sharing services, to help it expand in Italy, Spain and beyond.

Ridemovi, which operates micro-mobility services in 17 Italian and Spanish cities, said on Monday that Generali had bought the undisclosed sized stake through a specialized fund.

Ridemovi already operates some 30,000 bicycles, e-bikes and e-scooters and said in a statement on Monday that the Generali investment through Ocorian Fund Management would help it grow to 70,000, mainly electric vehicles.
