The forum will include a series of speeches starting at 10 a.m. on Tuesday 30 November. Mario Puliero, director of Telearena and Radio Verona, will open the work. He will introduce the first panel dedicated to road safety objectives and commitments for street safety with the interventions of Gonzalo Alcalde Rodriguez, president of A4 Holding, Alessia Rotta, MP and president of the Environment Territory and Public Works Commission, and Elisa De Berti Vice-President of the Veneto Region and councillor for transport and infrastructure.
