The Italian government puts Rome forward as a candidate for the 2030 Expo

Saturday, 02 October 2021 00:17

Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi, in a letter sent to the candidates in the upcoming election to choose a new mayor for the capital city, announced that the government is to nominate the city of Rome to host the Universal Exposition of 2030. "This is certainly a great opportunity for the development of the city," writes Draghi who thanks the candidates "for the demonstration of unity in favour of our capital.  “Hosting Expo 2030 in Rome would be an upturn for the whole of Italy, with new and significant job opportunities and economic revitalization."

Di Maio. “We have to do our best to get this candidacy”

Following Draghi’s announcement Foreign Minister Luigi Di Maio wrote on Facebook: "This is the starting point of a new path. It is another green challenge, a challenge of urban development and economic growth for our capital, and there is a lot to do. They will be intense months and we have to do our best to get this candidacy, " said Di Maio inviting all players to work together.

Expo 2030 would change the face of Italy’s capital city

The Rome project is very different from that for the Milan Expo which was concentrated in a single area just outside the city center. The Rome Expo 2030 would be considerably spread out, with the aim of regenerating public spaces and the abandoned architectural works already in the capital. The other candidates for the Expo 2030 are Moscow and the South Korean city of Busan.

Rome’s public transport system needs to change for the better

Rome’s Tiburtina, Pietralata, San Basilio and ​​Aniene suburbs are just some of the areas chosen for territorial reappraisal. By choosing to spread out pavilions and structures Rome will have to invest in and boost its transport system. The Atac public transport company has long been criticized for the poor state of stations and vehicles, and is one of the most important players in view of a possible victory to host Expo 2030.  The Expo would be a business of enormous proportions attracting  attention from all over the world.
