Port of Livorno, is all against all: operators against operators, institutions against institutions and associations against associations

Confitarma, is the magistracy "that it will establish to who, eventually, to charge faults and/or responsibility"

The "all against all" in the port of Livorno, with operators against institutions, institutions against institutions and operators against operators, become rich today of another dowel, with the representatives of the operators and the directly and indirectly involved institutions in the querelle that they indicate the right roads to cover in order to resolve the issue, that is centralized on the possibility to have of spaces and approaches in the Leighorn port of call for being able to realize own marine traffics. Only that the indicated roads are different.

In order to remain to happened how much in the last days, at the beginning of the year the mayor of Livorno, Filippo Nogarin, had launch the alarm for the possible abandonment of the port by the Grimaldi group for "some clutches with the Harbour office", territorial command whom he had denied approaches to ships of the group.

Stefano Messina tuesday, president of the new shipowning association Assarmatori, referring in general terms to the Italian portualità had asserted that in this field "the rules are and go respected from all the operators". Circumscribing the within to the ports of Civitavecchia and Livorno, the representative of the association had denounced that in these ports of call "the rules that subtend to the exercise of the terminal activities are violated in the name of an allegated protection of the traffic operated from certuni operators".

Now mayor Nogarin newly is taken part on the issue evidencing that "when the commercial wars are fought to blows of stamped papers, the risk is the paralysis. And he is exactly this that is happening in the port of Livorno, between resources, exposed, inquiries of the magistracy, "crashs" between institutions". According to Nogarin, "the first thing to do is to make clarity on some procedures. For this - he has announced - I have sped up minister Toninelli so that he convenes an appropriate table to Rome that, leaving from the Livorno case, can contribute to be profitable simpler and transparent the norms that regulate the system of the concessions in dock".

This afternoon has been the turn of the Italian Confederation Shipping (Confitarma), between whose associated figure the Grimaldi group, than answering directly to Assarmatori it has emphasized that "the affirmation that cannot not be shared "the rules are and go respected from all" but - it has specified the Confederation - at the same time, since they are still in course the investigations of the magistracy for the state property concessions in the port of Livorno, are exceptionable any appraisal with respect to legitimacy of the behaviors of operators and institutions before the sentence is emitted that will establish who, eventually, to charge faults and/or responsibility".

Confitarma, .blaming not even tacitly initiative of Assarmatori, between whose associated - it is said incidentally - it is present the Honored group Shipping (companies Moby and Tirrenia), antagonist by now from years of the Grimaldi group, has rimarcato that, "moreover, task of a trade association is that of protecting the interests of own associates but not taking part in situations of commercial type between two or more companies using object used as a weapons to defense of own associates, which typically are the participations on print, not based on the objective acquaintance of the case".

"All that premising - the note of Confitarma concludes, stinging, - we believe that a trade association, that has very clear which is its function, would have to be always in a position to conversing with local institutions and authorities to the aim to characterize a solution for the interest of the collectivity and not of the single involved subject. Besides to continue the dialogue with all the marine authorities and of harbour system, and not only those which today are to the center of the media attention, Confitarma wish that it is reached as soon as possible to a solution for the good of the port of Livorno, its competitiveness and its workers".

Reassuming: if Assarmatori has implicitly indicated that the road to cover in order to resolve the problems is that to exhort the prelocated institutions to enforce the laws ("the rules - it has evidenced Messina - are and go respected from all the operators", if Nogarin has proposed the road of the political mediation ("has sped up - it has said - minister Toninelli so that it convenes an appropriate table to Rome"), Confitarma has suggested to attend the pronunciamento of the judges ("is exceptionable - second the Confederation - any appraisal with respect to legitimacy of the behaviors of operators and institutions before the sentence is emitted that will establish who, eventually, to charge faults and/or responsibility". Therefore, they are the three roads. Perhaps but us of they are others.
