Genoa – What will be the future of the Ferris wheel in Genoa? The only certainty, at the moment, is the moving from the Old Port. At the beginning of October 2021, the disassembly operations of the Ferris wheel, which has stopped since 2016 betweenArena of the Sea And Calata Mandraccio. Now he is looking for one new accommodation.
The location of Kennedy square, the area taken into consideration is that of Brignole Gardens. In the last few hours, however, the proposal of Claudio Garbarino, managing director of Transport of the Metropolitan City of Genoa, and protagonist of the construction of the suburban hub in viale Caviglia.
In a video posted on the own Facebook page, Garbarino proposed a new location for the Ferris wheel in Genoa. “Today there is a problem – he explains – We have the extra-urban hub in Viale Caviglia, the square between Piazza della Vittoria and the Brignole railway station, where we act as the terminus for the whole province, from Arenzano to Sestri Levante and all the internal valleys. We have a handling of 90 couriers a day and 4/5 thousand people who move every day. request for land occupation by the company that manages the Ferris wheel, which must be moved due to the works in the Porto Antico area. Piazzale Kennedy is not available due to the works of the Levante Waterfront, while for viale Ankle would be, in my opinion, a big issue because we would put extra-urban and urban transport at risk by going back 30 years “.
Garbarino concludes: “Mi I feel like making a proposal, because rightly those who work must be protected: managers have every right to make requests, but politics must find solutions. I therefore propose to consider i Acquasola gardens, which could go back to the old glories. We have a beautiful Park frequented by mothers and children, with the Ferris wheel I feel in the condition of being able to study a plan for a shuttle that transports people from the center of Genoa to the gardens to go on the Ferris wheel. Acquasola would be re-evaluated, as viale Caviglia was re-evaluated, which was once considered a dangerous area. If we bring light to dark neighborhoods, life develops by itself “.
