After the technical meeting held in the Region in recent weeks with the leaders of the ASP and with the president of the association Angela Serra, Massimo Federico, the Regional Council of last November 20th allocated, in the budget adjustment, 500 thousand euros for the completion of the important project. Said and done.”
