It will take some time, but Inter Milan and AC Milan hope to have the definitive go-ahead to build their new stadium as soon as possible. It is expected to be built in the San Siro area with a multifunctional district being born as well.
The initial plan of the clubs was to demolish the San Siro, but the municipality opposed it. After long negotiations, an agreement was reached to convert the historic stadium to other functions, demolishing it only partially.
However, now there are some more issues with regards to the new stadium project. As reported by Corriere della Sera (via milanlive.it), the technical-scientific committees of the Ministry of Cultural Heritage have unanimously agreed on the opportunity to start the process for the historical relational constraint for the San Siro.
The application for the monumental bond had already been rejected by the Superintendency, which will soon also have to evaluate the request for the historical relational constraint.
This constraint represents protection concerning “immovable and movable things, which are of particularly important interest due to their reference to political, military, literature, art, science, technology, industry and of culture in general, or as evidence of the identity and history of public, collective or religious institutions”.
And the San Siro complies with this. The start of the process is certain and the outcome remains to be seen. The Municipality of Milan is concerned by the situation, while Milan and Inter are both worried as well. If the constraint is approved, many problems would arise in relation to the stadium project.
