AC Milan and Inter’s stadium project continues to get stopped in its tracks, with yet another big delay currently complicating the process. The Plan B, Sesto San Giovanni, thus remains well and truly alive.
It’s been over two years since the two clubs first presented the project for the San Siro area. Although progress has been made, just as the clubs were moving towards the go-ahead a series of obstacles have emerged.
As highlighted by Corriere Della Sera (via MilanNews), it was recently brought up by the undersecretary for culture of Italy Vittorio Sgarbi that the second ring of San Siro could receive landmark status as it will turn 70 years in 2024.
The parties involved are thus waiting on whether this is the case and the mayor of Milan, Beppe Sala, will soon stand in front of the council with the projects of the clubs. The members of the council will then vote on the matter, a vote that of course will be decisive.
In the background, there is always the Sesto San Giovanni hypothesis for the clubs.
