At the meeting with the journalists present also the Secretary General of the System Authority, Domenico Latellaand the member of the organism’s Management Committee, Alberto Porcelli.
Therefore, we start from a figure: 72 million euros, «all available – underlined Mega – for important restructuring and relaunching works of the port areas on both sides of the Strait.
