Italian politician urges Milan and Inter to build new stadium without demolishing San Siro

By Isak Möller -

AC Milan and Inter’s stadium project continues to be a hot topic of discussion and in recent weeks, high-profile politicians have had their say on the matter. The latest to do so is the president of the Italian Senate. 

The public debate for the stadium project was recently concöluded and there is a rather positive feeling with regards to the findings. You can read more about the key points of the debate and what will happen now here.

Speaking at a recent event, as cited by MilanNews, the president of the Italian Senate Ignazio La Russa shared his opinion on the project. He urged the clubs to build a new stadium next to San Siro, and not demolish the latter.

“The two-stadium design is convenient, absolutely necessary and useful. When we talk about Milan abroad, we know three things: the Duomo, La Scala and the San Siro stadium.

“I keep repeating that there is absolute compatibility, indeed there is an advantage in keeping the stadium as it is exactly San Siro and build a new stadium next door, as has happened in many European and South American cities.

“The economic plan that I took the liberty of submitting to Beppe Sala foresees a saving of 500 million, the cost of demolition, which adds up to the saving of enormous environmental damage,” he stated.

It’s not that feasible to keep San Siro, as we know, since Milan and Inter’s project includes a lot of ‘green areas’ around the new stadium and commercial spaces. Something that would be blocked if Giuseppe Meazza remains.

  1. When milan and inter build their own stadium without sansiro, sansiro will be empty stadium, why would they insist on retaining sansiro?

  2. I initially wanted this and for us to build in sesto,because it looked like we wouldn’t be allowed to build in Milan.But since the authorities have agreed,I don’t see the point of having San Siro if no one plays there
