“We started late: the Conte government and the mayor Raggi decided to propose this candidacy late as a sort of fallback in the face of the rejection of the Olympics for Rome which perhaps would have been a more easily achievable objective”, so the Minister of Business and Industry made in Italy
No Expo 2030 in Rome. The rejection of the Italian candidacy was “unfortunately a largely predictable result, because we started late”. Thus the Minister of Business and Made in Italy, Adolfo Urso to Annalisa Chirico, on Ping Pong on Radio Uno. “We started late: the Conte government and mayor Raggi decided to propose this candidacy late as a sort of fallback in the face of the rejection of the Olympics for Rome which perhaps would have been a more easily achievable objective also because we had already had the Expo in Milan in 2015”. (EXPO 2030 IN SAUDI ARABIA)
The disappointment is still great. “I would however avoid any form of recrimination – Minister Adolfo Urso then said in response to a question on the situation in the capital – because in the many conversations we have had in recent months in the various capitals the answers on the candidacy have been ‘we are already busy'”. Finally: “There is no point in complaining, what is needed is rather to learn from the mistakes made and prepare as best as possible for all the applications and for the international events already scheduled such as the Jubilee of 2025 and again in 2033 and then for the winter games in Cortina; let’s get ready to present the best Made in Italy excellence in the world”.
