ROME (Reuters) – Italy’s Transport Minister Paola De Micheli said on Tuesday she was confident that ongoing talks with Autostrade per l’Italia, the motorway unit of Benettton-led Atlantia <ATL.MI>, would lead to parties signing a revised concession in the coming days.
“Tomorrow we will define all the aspects needed for signing the additional document. It will take place within a few days,” De Micheli said in an interview with private broadcaster LA7.
After months of dispute, the government recently reached a preliminary compromise that left Autostrade with the concession but forced Atlantia to hand over control to state lender CDP and allied investors.
