Mayor Sala’s mission in Rome, meetings with the ministries for the Recovery funds: “Now we have to hurry”
He had already brought the package with all the dossiers to be financed last time, when he presented the plan to the ministries to attract the almost 5 billion of PNRR funds on the plate for Milan. Now the mission is different: “We must hurry” Beppe Sala repeats these days. Because the fast line of the junta in five days is the acronym of the action for the next five years. So, today, when in Rome he meets the ministries Enrico Giovannini and Vittorio Colao, respectively Infrastructures and Technological innovation and digital mobility, the request, directed to the government and digital mobility, will be on the timing of financing and spending. Seventy percent of the funds will be used by the end of 2022 and the remaining thirty by the following year. In this context, the fear that Sala has repeatedly expressed is one: with the tools and current legislation, staying within the deadlines is difficult. Virtually impossible.

Recovery in Milan, from Giambellino to Greco the desire to participate: “We have been waiting for too long”
by Federica Venni
Therefore – it is the reasoning – if the Municipalities have the responsibility to manage these resources they must be put in a position to do so in the times set by the European Union. No hypothesis of extraordinary powers or particular measures, but the guarantee that Rome puts virtuous realities like Milan in a position to work: a sort of preferential lane to speed up the procedures and dissolve the bureaucracy, under the strict control of the government. Because the risk of illegal infiltrations feared by Minister Lamorgese is real and our guard should not be lowered.
And it will probably be about what has been collected in Rome that the mayor will speak tomorrow, in the first meeting of the council, with his twelve new councilors. Of the perimeter within which to move and the need to team up to bring home the goals: social housing, sustainable mobility, energy transition, digitization, culture and school building. Today, again in Rome, it will also see the center-left candidate for mayor Roberto Gualtieri and the secretary of the Democratic Party Enrico Letta.
