ROME, Aug 2 (Reuters) - Italian Deputy Prime Minister Luigi Di Maio on Friday said the government should start as soon as possible the procedure to revoke the motorway concession of infrastructure group Atlantia.
A motorway bridge operated by Atlantia collapsed last year in northern Italy, killing 43 people and triggering backlash against the infrastructure group.
Ever since the incident the Italian government has been threatening to revoke the motorway concession. But until now, a consensus inside the government hasn't been reached.
Mentioning the victims of the disaster in a post on his Facebook account, Di Maio said "the unity of the government (on revoking Atlantia's concession) would be the best answer for the victims' families." (Reporting by Francesca Landini; Editing by Juliette Jabkhiro)
