CorSera: Milan and Inter to ask for clarity over restrictions on San Siro

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan and Inter could meet the Superintendency of the city to discuss a potential restraint being placed upon San Siro, a report claims.

The two clubs are going full steam ahead with plans for a new stadium, and last month they hosted an event in which Italian firm Manica and American giants Populous showed their designs for a proposed ‘new San Siro’.

Monday’s edition of il Corriere della Sera – as cited by MilanNews.it – claims that it is possible the two clubs will meet the Superintendency to see whether a ministerial constraint on is likely to be put on the current San Siro.

Milan and Inter are aiming to quickly clarify comments made by the Superintendency at the recent Services Conference, in which they stated: “Demolition is not the only option for the Meazza: alternative hypotheses such as the adaptation and transformation of the plant will be evaluated.

“In addition to the four towers and the third ring, another structure was added to the original structure in the 1950s, which is to be considered significant from an architectural point of view.”

Essentially, Milan and Inter are believe that a historical-relational constraint could be put on the structure due to its significance, which would then put an end to any chances of it being demolished.

Monday’s meeting is intended to iron out whether a restriction is likely to be imposed, and if so the idea of converting the current stadium to another function will become a serious consideration.
