Mayor Gualtieri: “Let’s try to start the works in Pietralata in 2024 and open the plant three years later”. Giallorossi CEO Berardi: “At the moment the Friedkin family wants to be the sole owner of the project”
Another important step towards the construction of the Pietralata stadium has been completed. After the conclusion – with a positive opinion – of the preliminary services conference, a press conference was held today in the Campidoglio – in the setting of the Sala delle Bandiera – to declare the public interest in the project for the new facility that will host the matches of the Giallorossi team. This is a fundamental step to take advantage of the stadia law. This was announced by the mayor of the capital Roberto Gualtieri and the Romanist CEO Pietro Berardi, together with the councilor for public transport Maurizio Veloccia and the councilor for major events, sport, tourism and fashion Alessandro Onorato. “We are satisfied – begins Gualtieri – we have chosen to be sober, concrete and effective to respect the times and put the city in a position to have a work that is also an opportunity for the redevelopment of a quadrant with great potential and which is placed in the urban mending of the quadrant with pedestrian paths, green areas, adaptation of Metro stations such as Quintiliani”.
The mayor Gualtieri announced the recognition of the public interest: “It is important news, we are on time. After the services conference, now the resolution will go to the classroom and with its final approval we will go to the executive project phase and take into account the requirements “. The mayor continues speaking of the construction times: “We would like the final project to arrive by the 23rd which will lead us to the definitive services conference which will lead us to the opening of the construction sites in 2024, to have the stadium operational in 2027, an anniversary important to society”. Councilor Veloccia continues: “Today is an important day, in the Giunta we approve the resolution on the public interest. We want to give the broadest guarantees and we demand them in return. The fact that there are committees against it indicates that the work can be done because in Rome it is impossible not to have someone against it. Surprises will surely await us underground, we hope that what we will find can be overcome and exploited, but does not preclude the work”.
The Romanist CEO Berardi instead spoke of the involvement of the Friedkin family in the project. In fact, the Texans: “They will be directly involved in the design and construction of the stadium, and will have a say in the aesthetics of the facility. No possible partner at the door instead. In fact, the Roma owners are not looking for partners or minority shareholders: “At the moment, the Friedkin family wants to be the sole owner of the project”.
