Rome mayor Virginia Raggi: “The stadium will be approved by Christmas”.

John Solano

Rome mayor Virginia Raggi spoke at an event today at Acquacetosa and was asked about the updates regarding the Stadio della Roma — her words come one day after Democratic Party leader of the Capitol, Giulio Pelonzi, expressed his opposition to the project.

“It is very simple, the Democratic Party does not want the stadium,” she stated to Ansa.

“I believe, though, that it is right to move it forward. I had all of the necessary checks carried out on all of the administrative processes and approvals and there have been no irregularities”.

“The procedural steps will continue — the final approval (vote) will arrive in chambers by Christmas and it will be approved then”.
