According to Nicola Gratteri, the bridge over the Strait is not a priority for Calabrians and Sicilians.
“It would be enough to carry out a survey and ask the inhabitants of these two Regions what they think of this topic. As a Calabrian, I say that in Calabria I would like the same infrastructures that exist in Veneto, Emilia Romagna and Lombardy – explained the prosecutor of the Republic of Catanzaro -. Just think that the Messina-Palermo motorway, compared to those in the north, is a mule track. We must first modernize the motorways in Calabria and Sicily, therefore, and then think about the bridge over the Strait” .
