Now that the people for the most strategic roles have been appointed, such as the newscast ones, the Milan project can be resumed. Milan’s city administration has relaunched the plan of moving the Rai (the national broadcasting company) headquarters to Milan. The administration requested a united proposal for a project coordination study to Fondazione Fiera Milan concerning the relocation of the RAI production centre in the wings 1 and 2 of the former exhibition centre in Portello.
This is a tactical move rather than technical. The request comes after the good results of a market survey launched by Rai concerning the operation that might conclude by the end of 2019, as explained by the City Councillor for urban planning Pierfrancesco Maran. He commented: “we’re happy about this project concerning Portello and its future function. We’ll start soon a collaboration with Fondazione Fiera to implement the objectives of the program as agreed”.
