ROLLING PIN. Vasco Rossi concert: the meetings, organized by the Municipality of Trento, continue to inform citizens on the main measures that will affect the city on the occasion of the event, scheduled for next May 20. The topics to be studied in detail concern in particular traffic, road closures, accesses to the concert area and parking lots.
Last night the appointment was in Mattarello, at the multipurpose room in via Poli. The engineer Silvia Marchesi, director of the CUE, the surveyor Fernando Poli of the municipal office responsible for roads and the chief commissioners of the local police Pierangelo Vescovi and Mauro Eccel attended.
Silvia Marchesi, after the introductory greeting by Paolo Frenez, head of the cabinet of the mayor of Trento, illustrated the general characteristics of the area affected by the show and spoke in particular of the accesses, the parking lots, the connecting shuttles between the most distant and the urban area. The main information, she recalled, are available on the website of the Province in a page dedicated to the event (https://www.ufficiostampa.provincia.tn.it/Vasco-Live).
Pierangelo Vescovi provided information on traffic closures planned in stages from the days before the concert to the outflow at the end of the show.
Mauro Eccel focused on the issue of food administration and authorized sales activities on the occasion of the event: he recalled that the Municipality has adopted a specific announcement. In Trento, he explained, exhibitors will also be able to keep their business open during the evening and the night following the concert to give spectators an extra service even in the outflow phase.
A few questions from the audience followed.
In general, it should be noted that the areas affected by the measures will be reachable by the residents through alternative routes. For example, to reach Mattarello from the north you will have to use the ring road (as long as the closures do not come into effect) and then the SP 90 (via Ravina-Romagnano). The highway, on the other hand, will always remain open.
The economic activities located in the southern area of Trento will all be accessible (except for distributors on the closed section). With these and other measures it is believed that the difficulties are easily manageable thanks to the alternative routes also guaranteed for workers.
Below, in summary, the topics covered during the evening and some of the information available on the website of the Autonomous Province of Trento
27 hectares; three areas for the public (Pit), from the closest to the stage the furthest to the north; behind the stage towards Mattarello there will be backstage and parking for the organization’s vehicles.
The concert will only be reached from the north, with two entrances: one from via dei Viticoltori, the other from via di San Vincenzo. These routes are the same for both inflow and outflow and are valid for everyone except for the disabled for whom a different access has been provided. For the outflow, specific signs will indicate to spectators the routes to follow, based on the vehicle they arrived with and the parking lot where they have their own vehicles.
