DIRE AGENCY – ROME – “I attach great significance to the liberation of the building in via del Caravaggio. In merit and method “. Thus, to the Dire agency, the prefect of Rome, Matteo Piantedosi, regarding the liberation of the building in via del Caravaggio, in the capital.
Piantedosi explains in particular what it means to be able, with the collaboration of the institutions, to put an end to one of the most delicate housing occupations in the city. For the approximately 400 occupants in housing emergency, in fact, the Municipality and the Region have made alternative housing and rental bonuses available, allowing the voluntary release of the building. “Specifically – explains the prefect – we carry out an operation that solves an illegal occupation that cost the public treasury 267 thousand euros a month, for a total of several million euros since it began. But the liberation of via del Caravaggio – he adds – also represents a result in the method. We can do it without resorting to the use of public force, which must always be the last resort. If we can do it, it is proof that there has been coordination between the various institutional levels in the area, a convergence towards a single result, which manages to reconcile the restoration of legality – and therefore the return to the legitimate ownership of the asset – the interruption of a haemorrhage for the public treasury and at the same time the recognition to those who had the right to have access to housing solutions, even temporary, and which allows these people to enter the institutional circuit for verifying their needs and vulnerabilities ” .
Maximum satisfaction, thank the Region and the Municipality
“I thank the Region and the Municipality. The solutions for the liberation of the building in via del Caravaggio were put in place for the benefit of those who had the title and according to the laws and regulations in force. So maximum satisfaction “. Thus, to the Dire agency, the prefect of Rome, Matteo Piantedosi, regarding the liberation of the building in via del Caravaggio.
“I am grateful to the Lazio Region, councilor Valeriani in particular – Piantedosi stressed – because the collaboration was important and made several dozen accommodations available. Mayor Raggi has done the same, has made housing and good rents available. I claim the fact – underlined the prefect – that we all looked each other in the eye and understood that despite having different and legitimate visions, it was important to resolve the issue ”.
Ready to reply soon, even with Casapound
“I plan to put the method used for via del Caravaggio on the table with the Region and the Municipality
to face with the same determination and with the same methodology also the other and numerous cases that we have similar to this one “. Thus, to the Dire agency, the prefect of Rome, Matteo Piantedosi, regarding the liberation of the building in via del Caravaggio.
And when asked whether a similar solution could also be hypothesized for the building in Via Napoleone III occupied by Casapound, Piantedosi replied: “It is valid for everyone, no one excluded. For all those occupations that have a residential vocation, to get to the restoration of legality in compliance with the conditions of vulnerability. We do not distinguish between cases ”.
“We have all had the demonstration that this is a method that can work and that we must certainly try to replicate it even on similar scenarios. And we will do it shortly ”, concluded the prefect of Rome.
Occupations are not a tool for benefits, zero tolerance
“I want to be very clear about one thing, as I was when we had discussions with the representatives of the occupiers: from now on we will not tolerate new illegal occupations. And we took some of them in the bud ”. Thus, to the Dire agency, the prefect of Rome, Matteo Piantedosi, after the liberation of the building in via del Caravaggio.
“If on the one hand we consider the discussion useful and profitable to solve problems that have now become chronic – he explained -, on the other hand, illegal employment is not the tool to have access to benefits that are instead foreseen for vulnerabilities. So we hope to speed up all operations to get to normality “.
