Roma finally got the definitive approval to build its new home. Stadio della Roma is a great project for the sake of the eternal city as well.
There are historical moments that can not be forgotten. On Tuesday, December 5, 2017, the Lupi reached two main goals. The first was the qualification to the next round of the Champions League. Di Francesco‘s men defeated Qarabag at the Stadio Olimpico celebrating the leading position of the GROUP C in front of their fans.
Roma’s second achievement was the final approval released by the ‘Conferenza dei Servizi’ for the Stadio della Roma. Luca Montuori, the Councilor for Urban Planning of the Italian capital, was interviewed by ‘Radio Radio’ and clarified that albeit technically Stadio della Roma is not owned by the club, Pallotta has a contractual obligation with it.
“I can confirm that there is a contractual obligation that links Pallotta, the owners of the stadium, and the club for 30 years. However, this is not a problem. Let’s think that Stadio Olimpico was built in the 30s. Then it was restored in the 60s and it hosted the World Cup in the 90s. Every 30 years the stadium changes as well as people’s needs. This is what we have assessed and this is the reason why we believe it is a reasonable time.”
