Paloma Aba Garrotedirector general of theExecutive agency of the European Commission Cinea, visited the port of Palermo today. The director of Cinea – the European Executive Agency for Climate, Infrastructure and the Environment which, in addition to dealing with the disbursement of finance in the transport sector, manages the European Commission’s programs for decarbonisation and sustainable growth – was in town to participate in the interesting event on the Horizon programme, ‘Restore our ocean and waters by 2030’, organized by the European Commission in collaboration with the Italian Government – Ministry of University and Research, the Sicilian Region, the University of Palermo and the support of the BlueMissionMed project coordinated by the National Research Center (Cnr).

Accompanied by general secretary of the AdSP of the western Sicilian Sea, Luca Lupi, carefully observed i construction sites open at the Trapezoidal Pier and on via Crispi, where work on the Interface is underwaywhose executive project was co-financed by the European Commission with Cef funds. Focused on the theme of sustainable urban renewalthe work aims to mend the relationship between the city and the port, reconstructing the maritime identity of the city and setting itself the goal of improving the degree of interaction between the port area and the surrounding urban system. The works have just started and will be completed at the end of 2024.

The AdSP, comments Lupi, “is by now a highly recognizable reality, perceived and identified as a key subject for the increase in Italian and European maritime traffic, a reliable partner, alongside and at the service of the business world, promoter of a sustainable development and supporter of the internationalization of the territory. It is a strongly attracting and attractive system of investments, including foreign ones. Today’s visit to the Garrote is a clear demonstration of this”. “I really appreciated – comments Aba Garrote – the visit to the port: the “Interface” project has obtained European funding but we are really satisfied when we see studios transformed into infrastructures for citizens and tourists in certain times. I always keep an eye on sustainability”.
