We ask the Region for further support in financial terms – he specified – given that the trend material prices have not stabilized and could be a problem.” Speaking of the “old hospital”, Caporale said that “space is being cleared in pavilion 6 in the meantime, it will then be demolished to make way for the parking lots”.
