The mayor of Venice accusation minister Toninelli to block the solution for the transit of the great ships in Laguna

The decision - Brugnaro has remembered - already is assumed in Comitatone 20 months ago

Yesterday, to a month from the collision between cruise ship MSC Opera and the fluvial boat River Countess, to Venice another great cruise ship, Costa Deliziosa, in the course of a violent thunderstorm has grazed an yacht to the anchor and other boats, probably avoided crash thanks to the work of the tugs that are successful to ask for the incident.

In a note the crocieristica company Costa Crociere has emphasized that "the violent, extraordinary and sudden meteorological event that has interested all the East North this afternoon (yesterday, ndr), has hit also Costa Deliziosa with violent bursts that have caused a shunting line during the passage in the Channel of the Giudecca, carried out as always under the indications of the commander of the port, of the pilot and of the three tugs to which the ship it was tied that they have promptly assisted the ship in the maneuver". The company has specified that "the commander has always maintained the control of the ship also in extreme conditions and improvises difficulty" and that "the ship has resumed its course towards the planned destination".

For mayor of Venice, beyond which they will be the causes of the episode that will be assessed by the authorities, the responsibility before is of the minister Toninelli who - according to Luigi Brugnaro - blocks the solution for the transit of the great cruise ships in the Lagoon of Venice. "The greater responsibility than has happened yesterday and of what it will be able to happen in future - Brugnaro has denounced today - it is of who it has not decided in these months. The reference - it has added the first citizen - is to the minister of Infrastructures and Danilo Toninelli Transports, that it has functional powers on the entire harbour row, from the Harbour office to Guard Costiera, from the Provveditorato to the Public works to the Authority of Harbour System".

Specifying that "sure the conditions weather-navy in which the episode has happened yesterday have been exceptional" and that "the competent authorities will make clarity on how much success" and turning it compliments "all the marine staff that, in the several situations of danger, has faced with great competence the difficulties", Brugnaro has emphasized that "the time of the wait is ended. We are - the mayor has asserted - very angry. Enough with the ships to San Marco and long the Channel of the Giudecca. Minister Toninelli as soon as possible comes to report to the city institutions the outcomes of the umpteenth inspection that has ordered. I hope is the occasion in which, finally, after a wait year, the minister sits down to the table with Municipality and Region in order to reason of "great ships", with humility and without ideological and political preconceptions".

For Brugnaro, "the immediate solution is, is called - it has explained - covered from the mouth of Port of Malamocco, through the Channel of the Oils, with Marine destination via Vittorio Emanuele Channel for the smaller ships and Marghera destination, channel north side north, for those largest ones(of 8 November 2017, ndr). Vittorio Emanuele - he has found the mayor - can itself be realized in about a year, with private capitals, waiting for alternative projects that need of longer times, than at least 5/10 years. Solution on which also the Unesco has expressed appreciation".

"Caro Ministro - it has concluded Brugnaro - how much anchor we have to wait for? How much anchor will be deaf to the demands for the international community and the city institutions in order to only listen to the committees of not to all and the famous usuals that instrumentalize from years the issue preventing any solution? How many studies cost-benefits and investigations will want to make before to arrive to a solution? Why it is still distorting? There are an entire city and thousands of workers who deserve institutional respect and an immediate answer".
