The first meeting at the Convention of the Confindustria Nautica of Viareggio concerned the issue of the reform of the state property deriving from the European Union Directive 2006/123 / EC called the Bolkestein Directive. It was attended by Giovanni Toti President of the Liguria Region, the Hon. Umberto Buratti, member of the Chamber of Deputies Finance Commission and Sen. Massimo Mallegni, member of the Public Works Commission. Buratti stressed that the debate underway in these hours does not only concern the issue of beaches because “on the Italian coasts there are not only bathing establishments, the Italian coasts have structures such as residential properties, petrol stations, ports, shipyards, all a number of other activities and all of these should be regulated. A mapping is needed to understand the type of concession. It is necessary to go into detail and not put in a rule that does not take these interests into account “. For Toti these are “complex questions and too often politics has given simple or simplistic answers. We wasted a lot of time arguing that the Bolkestein would not have been applied or would have been applied according to an Italian way, then the council of state and jurisprudence confronted us with what we could have expected for years. Especially when there is a negotiation with Europe with a PNRR worth over 200 billion euros and which obviously brings with it stringent administration and competitiveness rules. So if the country does not increase its productivity in the next 20 years, the NRR will become debt ”. “We have to think about how Bolkelnstein is applied with the guarantees of competition and equity with respect to investments made, to business diversity”, continued Toti. “In this way, the right path is taken to open negotiations with the government. If, on the other hand, we think that the competitions will not be held, sooner or later, since a European regulation cannot be derogated from a regulation of the Italian parliament, we will one day find ourselves committing abuse of office. We risk finding ourselves with the marinas and establishments with the chain, the mayors under investigation or for omission of official documents. We need to go to a definition of this issue with Europe that is fair, supportive and competitive. For years all our beaches have been blocked from investments because no one knows what future those concessions will have, so we are blocking tens and hundreds of millions of euros of investments waiting for the legislator to agree with another superordinate legislator who is the Europe”.
