The Mayor of the commune of Rozzano has confirmed that he wants Inter Milan to build their new stadium in the area.

Speaking to Milan-based newspaper Il GIornale, via FCInterNews, Rozzano Mayor Gianni Ferretti De Luca stated that while there is some political opposition, the desire of the municipality is to have the stadium built.

Rozzano is the area in which Inter have been pursuing plans to build a new stadium.

Last year, the Nerazzurri presented their formal plans for a stadium project to the municipality. And they also received the exclusive right to conduct a feasibility study in a large vacant area in the commune.

That exclusive right initially expired at the end of last month. However, as Ferretti confirms, Inter extended it.

There would still be a long way to go before Inter can really get moving on new stadium plans.

Moreover, there is still Milan Mayor Beppe Sala hoping that Inter and AC Milan would be willing to reverse course and stay in the San Siro if there are major renovations.

However, for his part, the Mayor of Rozzano makes no secret of his desire to see the Nerazzurri come to his commune.

Rozzano Mayor: “We Want Inter Milan Stadium”

“Inter have just extended their exclusive right to the area,” noted Rozzano Mayor Ferretti.

“And the private owner of the land didn’t just grant it as a pat on the back. Therefore, the interest in Rozzano is still there.”

As far as the possibility of Inter instead choosing to stay at the San Siro, Ferrerri said that “We’re waiting to see what WeBuild put on the table in June as far as renovation plans for the Meazza.”

“As the Mayor, as well as an Inter fan, I’d have already decided,” he added. “But I have to wait.”

As far as the politics of having Inter build a stadium in Rozzano go, Ferretti said that “I considered a great opportunity. Including from the perspective of related activities.”

The Mayor specified “The additional services that we could then obtain to improve transportation and roads.”

“The Democratic Party and the Five-Star Movement are against it on ideological grounds,” Ferretti noted of two major parties in Rozzano.

“But if the stadium is not build on that area, then it will still be buildings, hotels, offices built.”

The Rozzano Mayor argued that “The ‘green space’ option doesn’t exist. Private individuals have building rights dating back to 1993.”
