“I read the news of a stop on the tour of Antonello Venditti and Francesco De Gregori which should be hosted together on August 25th at the Palermo Velodrome.
Yesterday I promptly sent a note to the deputy mayor, the councilor for sport and the Coime executive, to find out the date of completion of the works that are currently in progress at the aforementioned sports facility and a copy of the minutes of the municipal supervisory commission on the premises of public show, which would have authorized the performance of the concert.
Quite simply, I find it singular to launch the sale of tickets for a major event of national importance, when we are not yet certain about the actual conclusion of the work.
“This was declared by councilor Rosalia Viviana Lo Monaco, group leader of the 5 Star Movement in the City Council.

“After years of bleak closure – continues Lo Monaco – after the numerous inspections carried out with the Fifth Commission and with the Transparency and Guarantee Commission of the Municipality of Palermo, during which I denounced the state of neglect of the places and materials purchased for the renovation of the sports facility and in a first phase not adequately used and preserved, I await the date of completion of the works to see the Paolo Borsellino Velodrome return to its splendor.
of use should concern cycling.
We need to restore dignity to sport and to the many athletes who have been forced to move away from home for years in order to train or participate in competitions and championships “.

Finally, the councilor adds: “I hope that the eventual organization of concerts and public entertainment events in the sports facilities of our city, still in a state of neglect today, can in the future be included in an overall program, curated by councilor for culture in close synergy with the councilor for sport, assessing the feasibility of the event each time based on the specific characteristics of each facility and the guarantees necessary to protect it “.
