The Agenzia del Demanio illustrates objectives for 2017: €1.4 bln available for investments
A reduction in spending by public authorities and the country’s growth are the main objectives on which activities by the Agenzia del Demanio, which manages 44,623 assets worth about 60 billion euro, are to focus in 2017. This was explained by Director Roberto Reggi (in the photo, to the right), in the presence of Minister of Economy and Finance, Pier Carlo Padoan (on the left).
The Agenzia del Demanio plans to launch a rationalisation projects on public spaces for about €1.4 billion with the implementation of more than 130 plans nationwide. Among these, 34 are Federal Building operations which will allow Public Authority offices to be concentrated within the same building, in order to offer citizens services which are more integrated and useable and generate savings for the state.
In terms of reuse and regeneration of public assets, the flagship project is Valore Paese Fari, which in 2017 will lead to conclusion of the second call for bids and to allocation of 20 structures which, thanks to a business idea, could be leased for up to 50 years and turned into welcoming spaces linked to the culture of the sea, the environment and sustainable tourism. 54 bids have arrived for this second edition of the project.
The Agenzia del Demanio has also decided to invest in more decentralised areas and in assets that are part of locations which are less well known, outside the usual tourist flows but no less fascinating, such as those located along historical, religious or naturalist itineraries, which the Cammini e Percorsi project – under development – builds on.
Enriched by buildings which are no longer used by the Public Authorities, the Proposta Immobili programme will continue. This is an initiative promoted by the Ministry of Finance and by the Agenzia del Demanio, selecting public assets for enhancement. There are, for example, 1,283 properties which, depending on their nature and vocation, will be incorporated within a pathway for enhancement, concession, sale and transfer to real estate funds.
