Mayor Gualtieri is determined to make Rome Europe’s greenest city


Another portion of Tor Marancia park in Rome has officially been opened. This way, 13 hectares of green space have been returned to the residents of the Italian capital, according to Mayor of Rome Roberto Gualtieri.

Mayor Gualtieri stated on social media: ‘A piece of public green space that had been waiting for too many years to become usable again, which we are handing over to the city equipped with children’s play areas, shade and benches.’’

He also said that he was very satisfied with the new agreement which, in his words, has brought an end to a standoff.

‘’I am truly satisfied with the new agreement that we as Roma Capitale have reached with the Tormarancio Consortium, which has allowed us to break a deadlock and finally reach a shared understanding on the future management of the area,’’ he explained.

The councilors Sabrina Alfonsi and Maurizio Veloccia, the president of the VIII Municipality, Amedeo Ciaccheri, and the president of the Tormarancio Consortium, Carlo Odorisio, all delivered excellent work and together fulfilled the pledge that the city had made to the residents, Mayor Gualtieri stated.

‘’Now let’s move on to give the city other pieces of the Park, a green area that is unique in Europe that we intend to make the most of. We want to fully realize the vocation of Rome as the greenest city in Europe, and together, day after day, we will succeed,’’ he concluded. (photo credit: Faith Crabtree/Unsplash)
