The resources are allocated, among the following interports: Bologna – Interporto Bologna Spa, Cervignano – Interporto di Cervignano del Friuli Spa, Livorno – Interporto Toscano A. Vespucci Spa, Nola – Interporto Campano Spa, Novara – Centro Interportuale Merci Spa, Padua – Interporto Padova Spa, Parma – CE.P.I.M. Centro Padano Interscambio Merci Spa, Portogruaro – Portogruaro Interporto Spa, Rovigo – Interporto di Rovigo Spa, Turin – Società Interporto Torino Spa, Venice – Interporto Rivers Venezia Srl and Verona – Interporto Quadrante Europa – Consorzio ZAI.

The president of UIR, Unione Interporti Riuniti, Matteo Gasparato pointed out “how quick the process of the MIT measure was, about 10 months, from the public notice of submission of applications for access to resources for the completion of the national network of freight villages” on January 31, 2023, to the signing of the Conventions that materially kicks off the activation of the various projects. This is testimony to the great attention to interports, which Minister Salvini, Deputy Ministers Rixi and Bignami, and the entire current government pay to the subject of interports. The hope, now, is that a framework law on the reform of interports will be reached soon, with the fruitful cooperation of the executive and parliamentary institutions.”
