The discussion around a referendum on the future of San Siro is not dying down despite Mayor Beppe Sala’s rejection of the idea, according to a report in the Italian media today.
As has been reported by FCINternews, the Mayor of Milan, Beppe Sala, recently refused to condone a referendum on the demolition of the current San Siro as he feels elected politicians should not defer their decisions to the public for this type of issue.
Despite this, the president of the San Siro Committee, Gabriella Bruschi, has confirmed that the group intend to start collecting signatures for a referendum on the issue.
Gabriella Bruschi’s statement said: “We confirm the desire to start collecting signatures for a referendum that is not only local but that has a national scope. Anything to stop the mess.”
The referendum can only take place if there are a thousand signatures that have been gathered within 120 days of the declaration to begin gathering signatures.
This development represents a possible further delay to Inter and AC Milan’s hopes to be in their new stadium as soon as possible.
