The mayor of Genoa was awarded the ‘Ambasciatori Grande Milano nel mondo’ award for having contributed to the reconstruction of the infrastructure of the Morandi bridge and for his deep connection with Milan
“What I have received is an acknowledgment of which I am very proud and happy. Being ambassadors means carrying the message beyond borders. And being an ambassador of Greater Milan means thinking of a large macro-region that includes Genoa, Turin and Milan, cities with distances that are absolutely acceptable in today’s world, and making it a reality. We can do something really important, in fact we talk about our future and that of our children”. These are the words of Marco Bucci, mayor of Genoa, on the sidelines of the event ‘Great mayors: creating sustainable cities’, organized by the Centro studi Grande Milano and of which Bper Banca is a sponsor. The mayor of Genoa was awarded the ‘Ambasciatori Grande Milano nel mondo’ award for having contributed to the reconstruction of the infrastructure of the Morandi bridge and for his deep connection with Milan.
“Already today there are many commercial and commuting relationships between these cities and when we will have the third crossing point in 2025 we will be able to get from Genoa to Milan in less than an hour – added Bucci – thus allowing people to move even daily from a city to another for work, or other needs, without necessarily having to move. This large macro-region can become the guide of Europe, just as today Milan is the guide city of Italy. Another indispensable aspect for the success of this project is sustainability: cities must be sustainable from both a social and environmental point of view, as well as from an economic point of view”.
