Connecting Northern Italy With Central Europe
Connecting Northern Italy With Central Europe.
The question of transport between Northern Italy and Central Europe occupied the attention of a meeting held recently in Milan over which Signor Mussolini presided. The following resolution was passed:—
The parliamentary, political, provincial, commercial and economic representatives of Upper Italy, called together by His Excellency the head of the Government to discuss the general problem of traffic between Central Europe and the gates of Northern Italy, affirm the utility of a great railway line through the Stelvio Pass and the district of Resia to connect in the shortest and quickest manner the port of Genoa with the capitals of East Central Europe, also the port of Venice through the Resia Pass with the capitals of East Central Europe, and respectfully request the Government to institute the study of the ways and means of executing this great work.
It is anticipated that the projected lines would draw to Italian ports all the “rapid” traffic of Central Europe.
