“I would like to share with you some thoughts on five priorities. Transport, waste, safety, urban design and archeology “. The former mayor of Rome Ignazio Marino writes this in a letter to the candidates for mayor of the capital published in the Messaggero.
For Marino, “Rome has the right to have its own share of the National Transport Fund by modifying the financing methods with a direct allocation of the State”. And then on the subject of waste, “in 2015, after the closure of the Malagrotta landfill, a plan developed along three lines was approved and financed: autonomy of the plants, cost reduction with increased productivity of services and development of separate waste collection. I still consider it a valid plan based on the construction of new eco-districts equipped with biodigesters for the production of gas, and plants for the treatment of plastics and paper ”.
“Finally, archeology, security and urban design” continues the former mayor who underlines: “I imagine the Rome of the future as a federation of cantons in which the metropolis is no longer a heavy and inefficient central body, but more than a place a ‘idea. A new Rome, glocal, kind and attentive in serving the population but superb in its universal role. Revolutions start from dreams and ideas. This is my vision: the vision of a person who loved and loves Rome ”.
