The General Hospital of Umberto I in Rome released a statement denying the rumored interest in Pietralata area of the city.
Earlier today, a report by il Tempo claimed the Roman General Hospital had presented a letter condemning Roma’s choice to build their new stadium in Pietralata – an area the hospital had reportedly selected for their own new establishment.
However, Umberto I were quick to deny these rumors with the following press release:
“Regarding the news published today by the newspaper Il Tempo, relating to the identification of the area destined to host the new Umberto I Polyclinic, the General Management of the hospital specifies that no letter has ever been sent to the administration of Roma Capitale on the subject in question.”
“The identification of the area on which the new Umberto I Polyclinic will be built is the subject of a discussion within a control room established by the Lazio Region and constituted, among other subjects, by the regional administration itself, by the municipality of Roma Capitale, from the Umberto I Polyclinic and from the Sapienza University of Rome.”
“It is not the responsibility of the Policlinico Umberto I to discuss issues relating to urban planning, in particular – it is noted – those which concern the project of the new AS Roma stadium, functions which obviously fall to other institutional subjects and for which, the General Management of this Hospital has great respect and trust.”
