Nogarin: Grimaldi Lines could decide to abandon the port of Livorno

The mayor has explained that the possible cancellation of the ports of call could be consequence of some clutches with the Harbour office

Grimaldi Lines, company of navigation of the Neapolitan shipowning group Grimaldi, could decide to abandon the port of Livorno. The mayor of the city Tuscany, Filippo Nogarin has announced the New Year's Eve, specifying that the cancellation of the ports of call to the Leighorn port of call could be determined "because of some clutches with the Harbour office".

"It seems to me - it has specified the mayor - that is on a real arm-wrestle between Harbour-office and Harbour Authority. An arm-wrestle of which the reasons and the contours are little clear and therefore I do not intend to get to the point than it is happening. But a thing is sure: I will take part personally near the Ministry of Transportation in order to make so that any tension is reduced and that the public interest is protected also in this case".

"I say - it has added it Nogarin - in very clear way: this city cannot afford to let out a so important shipowner, because an eventual goodbye would be translate in a meaningful loss of places of work and this would be intolerable. Our city, in the past, has already paid a too much high price in term of lost places of work because of made mistaken political choices in the port of Livorno. Now enough - it has concluded the first citizen of Livorno - the goodbye of Grimaldi must be asked for".
