«Il Auronzo ice rink? The only viable solution isfelling». In the days in which the Administration (in collaboration with the Cadore cooperative) launches the outdoor ice skating rink on an experimental basis for three months of Piazza Santa Giustina, the mayor Dario Vecellio back to talking about an age-old problem.
«We said it during the electoral campaign and I repeat it today without any doubt», he underlines, «We will no longer invest a single cent in the ice rink. It’s about a obsolete structuremarked by time. At this moment there are no conditions for carrying out buffer operations useful for making it available even for a short period. The structure is too big and complains of a long series of problems; even if we wanted to, we wouldn’t even know where to start».
Chapter to be closed as soon as possible and then give way to a completely new idea.
«Having said that the idea at the moment is the demolition of the current structure», adds Dario Vecellio, «we will evaluate what will be born in its place together with the associations that have written the history of Auronzano sport and its ice rink. The goal at the moment is to proceed with therapid slaughter. The area in which the ice rink stands is dedicated to sports. In place of the ice rink, a structure for the practice of ice sports. No change of intended use will be taken into consideration.”
Said of what will be, at the moment skating enthusiasts will have a valid alternative available so far always missing.

Today we transform it into reality thanks to the support of the municipal offices and workers».
