” I very much agree with the visions that want to give Rome the capital the same legislative powers as a Region, which would allow us to operate more conveniently at the city level. On the territorial perimeter of the new body, to understand Rome-Region, discussions will have to be made whether to keep it limited to the urban perimeter or make it coincide with the metropolitan area ”. This was stated by the mayor of Rome, Virginia Raggi, in a hearing before the Constitutional Affairs Committee of the Chamber on the order and powers of Rome. At the same time a ” speech on the status of Rome-Region will have to review the issue of decentralization but it will be essential to never lose the unity of the city. We cannot accept that Rome is considered the set of 15 autonomous municipalities, with municipalities of series A and series B. We must maintain the minimum level of performance ”. ” Since the beginning of the capital council I have put the topic on the table special powers for the capital of Italy because objectively Rome, compared to other European capitals, starts with a gap. Having arrived here with the theme present in the political agenda of all parties is a good result, ” said the mayor.
