"You cannot - he stressed - do not take into account these data and how much happened in a reality strongly focused on the industry Cruise. For the passenger part it is evident that the port of Civitavecchia is by far the most penalised in Italy and this aspect cannot but be considered to allow the port of Rome to depart. As far as concerns goods we are working to attract and develop new traffic, in the knowledge that it will take time to reverse the trend.'
