The third meeting of the Jubilee 2025 Coordination Cabin was held today at Palazzo Chigi, chaired by Undersecretary to the Presidency of the Council, Alfredo Mantovano and attended by Minister of Tourism Daniela Santanché, Mayor of Rome and Extraordinary Commissioner of the Government Roberto Gualtieri, and Pro-Prefect of the Holy See's Dicastery for Evangelization Monsignor Rino Fisichella. The subject of the meeting was the imminent publication in the Official Gazette of the measure adopting simplification measures to speed up the implementation of works in the territory, with adequate safeguards of legality.

"Thanks also to the legislative interventions introduced in the Pnrr 3 decree, which allows the acceleration and simplification of tender procedures on the most important interventions, we will be able to open construction sites earlier than planned," Roberto Gualtieri said at the conclusion of the meeting. " the goal for the underpass of Piazza Pia is the opening of its construction site by June. Also in Piazza San Giovanni, Piazza Risorgimento and Termini Station," he added, "we will start the works with a faster time frame than expected.

 "We have done a very extensive reconnaissance of the status of all the interventions and we are proceeding according to the schedule," stressed Rome's mayor and Jubilee commissioner. "We have also approved a remodeling of some Caput Mundi interventions that allows us to bring to 150 the sites on which we will do interventions and to have 50 percent of them completed by December 2024, in time for the Jubilee."

Regarding the works, during the Coordination Cabin, aspects related to, among others, those insisting on the City of Sports, Piazza Pia and Piazza Risorgimento, Piazza dei Cinquecento, and Piazza San Giovanni were illustrated.
