Reggio, new synthetic turf for the Archi sports field


By John

The activity continues redevelopment of sports facilities in the territory of the Municipality of Reggio Calabria. In recent days the Administration has paid a lot of attention to the structures dedicated to football, specifically in three neighborhoods with a great tradition, such as Catona, Pellaro and finally Archi. In this case the commitment of Palazzo San Giorgio involves the implementation of the synthetic turf which will give new life and better functionality to the Archi sports field. The 500 thousand euro intervention is financed with Pnrr funds and the work is expected to be completed in 120 days. The councilor for public works of the municipality, Rocco Albanese, the municipal councilor delegate for sport, Giovanni Latella, the municipal technicians and the executing company took part in the delivery of the works. The main objective is to complete the sports area overall, which has already been the subject of a functional intervention in previous years.
“Sport, in the programmatic intentions of the mayor Giuseppe Falcomatà – said Giovanni Latella – represents an element of great social value. The redevelopment of the sports structure of Archi promoted a few years by the mayor Falcomatà fits into this sense. This commitment , which is also continuing with the acting mayor Paolo Brunetti, is always aimed at ensuring that our young people can have adequate spaces for healthy aggregation in all neighborhoods. In the current three interventions – he adds – including the Archi one, we are trying to guarantee a better quality in sports practice, in this case football, which boasts a glorious past. The hope is that it can continue by offering a standard of quality that is in step with the times”. “Football, especially at a youth level, always manages to provide moments of great emotion, which is why – concluded Latella – we will continue, very carefully, with the completion of the sports facilities planned throughout the city of Reggio Calabria, trying to fill that structural gap which often limits the potential of those who practice it”.
