This morning, a group of directors and athletes from ASI, along with regional president Roberto Cipolletti, posted two banners with the words “Rome and sport deserve respect” on the fence of the Vele di Calatrava shipyard in Tor Vergata to protest against this infinite waste made to the detriment of Roman and national sport and to propose a solution to the future mayor of Rome.
“With this event in a symbolic place of waste to the detriment of sport, we want to denounce the lack of programming and finally the abandonment and indifference of local institutions”, said Claudio Barbaro, senator of the Fdi and president of the Asi, sports and social associations. Italian.
“The symbolic place is the Vele di Calatrava in the city of sport in Tor Vergata, the biggest waste of public money that a Capitoline administration has ever made in favor of sport and social activities. It was in fact the mayor Veltroni who commissioned in 2005 this work which was to be used for the 2009 world swimming championships, but which Alemanno inherited in fact in 2008 without resources and without the time to complete it for the event in which he was intended. After Alemanno, who in any case completed the closure of the cellar and included it among the work planned for Rome’s candidacy for the 2020 Olympics, no mayor has ever requested the means (around 600 million plus very administrative costs. high) to complete the work. , the problem of an alternative destination did not arise either.
“All this waste – declared Barbaro – only thanks to the erroneous and demagogic choices of a left administration. The UPS proposes not to dismantle it as Calenda requested (an operation in any case expensive) but to immediately give it a new destination compatible with the available resources. By promoting a public competition for ideas for carrying out the work and finding a commercial partner for the management of the work. Certainly, it should not, for any reason, remain a monument to the failure of this city in the eyes of all who come to visit it ”.
Also present at the Flash mob were the Roman leaders of Fratelli d’Italia Alessandro Cochi and Giorgio Ciardi and the representatives of Municipality VI.
