Virginia Raggi, the Mayor of Rome, raises more questions surrounding Stadio della Roma


Rome mayor Virginia Raggi, once again, has cast doubt surrounding AS Roma’s stadium project, Stadio della Roma.

The project was first introduced in 2014 but has yet to be formally approved thanks to several bureaucratic delays from Raggi and her administration.

In late September, the 42 year-old asserted that the stadium would be approved before Christmas, but unsurprisingly, this turned out to be another false statement and broken promise.

Today, though, Raggi cast doubt surrounding the project, which was initially introduced by former Roma President James Pallotta, and admitted that an alternative building site may have to be evaluated.

“Despite what the papers from the Region of Lazio say, the city has done everything required for the stadium,” defended Raggi during an interview with INRadioNews.

“This is a private project so the club has the right to choose where to build, but from a governmental standpoint, we will decide if Pallotta’s project will be carried forward or if alternate sites will be considered.”

“Our administration is ready to move forward with either of these options.”
