"The sooner the commissioner is appointed, the better" but "everyone is already able to work". This was said by the Minister of Infrastructure and Transport, Matteo Salvini. "It's not that the commissioner is baby Jesus," Salvini added. "It is not that there is a commissioner with saving powers, a commissioner is not enough to say that we are leaving" with the reconstruction work after the flood. "If the commissioner solved all the problems, I would not have a firm work. I have 117," he added.
The minister also intervened on the Strait Bridge. "We are unlocking hundreds of works" and among them "there is a bridge that will be the bridge between Palermo, Rome, Milan and Berlin. A bridge that bothers many and instead I think it will annoy the mafia because it will bring development and real work to lands that want it". This was stated by the Minister for Infrastructure Matteo Salvini during the League's political training school in Milan. "Then they are all becoming engineers - added Salvini - I made history and fortunately for the Sicilians I did not design the bridge". "My burden and honor - concluded the minister - is to start again after 50 years of talk. I was at the parliamentary debate and they all became engineers..."
