The unsustainable slowness of the TAV

There’s no agreement for the Tav in Val di Susa. The towns and villages are against it. They have even turned down the 5% “compensation”, almost a thousand million euro. They haven’t accepted to be bought, unlike many other towns and villages in this country.
When something has motivations that are obscure and incomprehensible, it means that there are other motivations that cannot be spoken. If, as explained by Ferrentino the president of the mountain Community of Val di Susa, there’s no reason to do a certain construction activity costing from 20 thousand million euro, and perhaps 30 thousand million euro, by making a hole in the mountain, then the only reason is to be found in the current accounts of those who are to put the work into effect and their political backers.
It’s a bipartisan gobble-gobble. A rightleftcentre infrastructure.
Ferrentino says that with the tunnel, the speed of the French TGV in the Valle would go from 160 km per hour currently to 120. That the quantity of goods traffic in transit has been going down for years. That with the current line it would be possible to treble the quantity of goods transported.
Ferrentino sets out simple concepts and facts, understandable even to Chiamparino, and they have already been explained by professor Ponti, one of the leading European experts on transport issues.

The European contributions that the Government talks so much about would cover a small part of the costs. It’ll be you that pays the rest, you who is reading this post. Are you happy?

This is another example of how Italy deals with progress.
The problem with Italy or the Italians is that they want to be part of the Western world with all the high living standards but without sacrificing anything: no windmills because they ruin the view; no highways because they pollute; no nuclear power because it makes people glow; no OGM ;no Chinese products; no this; no that and still expecting to have 3 cell phones, a nice car, nice clothes, a good vacation, etc. I believe they think they still live in the Renaissance period claiming to be the smartest people around (inventors, scientists, architects,etc). I am so sick and tired of earing the same comments like :"We have Rubbia";"We have Zichichi";"We have the Collosseum". I am sorry to inform you but for every Rubbia (no disrespect whatsoever) there are hundreds of other scientists from all over the world who make discoveries every day. I am sorry to inform you that the Colosseum was built 2000 years ago. Tell me, what have the Italians built let's say in the last century? Well,look this up in any architectural book and you'll see nothing worth mentioning.
All I am saying is that the Italians should wake up (I hope this new initiative from Beppe will take off) or they will loose something more than their reputation.
