Latest proposals over Atlantia are insufficient, according to Italy PM Conte
MILAN (ITALY) – Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte was quoted as saying on Monday, it was found that the latest proposals from infrastructure group Atlantia in its dispute with the government over tollway unit Autostrade per l’Italia are not sufficient.
The dailies La Stampa and Il Fatto Quotidiano both carried comments from Conte saying the government was willing to cancel Autostrade’s operating licence over the 2018 Genoa bridge disaster. The decision is expected in cabinet on Tuesday.
Il Fatto quoted Conte as saying the proposals received on Saturday were “unsatisfactory”. He was quoted in La Stampa as saying Atlantia’s controlling shareholders, the powerful Benetton family, had failed to understand that the government would not put the public interest at stake for their benefit.
