Mayor of Rome Virginia Raggi has confirmed in a Facebook post that a revised project for the Stadio della Roma has been accepted by the city council and will be built at Tor di Valle.
The 3 towers have been removed, the total area has been reduced – in fact by 60% in relation to the Business Park – we’ve raised the construction standards to class A4, the highest in the world, we’ve secured the Decima neighbourhood which now won’t be at risk of flooding, and we’ll construct a new station for the Roma-Lido line.
We’ve revolutionised the Stadio della Roma project and we’ve transformed it into an opportunity for Rome. We’ve always said that we’ve been in favour of building the stadium but only if the rules are respected and if it is in the best interests of our city.
We’ve succeeded. We’ve avoided the monstrous project that we inherited from the previous administration. A stadium will be built at Tor di Valle but it will be modern, eco-friendly, at the forefront of technological innovations but most of all it will be a stadium that will respect the environment and the landscape much more.
We’ve scheduled a meeting with the constructors: the works that will be useful in modernising the city will have priority, like the works to protect the Decima neighbourhood or the development of the Roma-Lido railway, thanks to which it will be possible to reach the coast at Ostia much quicker.
