Visit to the pilot intervention realized in Masate
On Friday, September 10th 2021, in the late afternoon was held the presentation to the public of the pilot intervention of the LIFE Metro Adapt Project carried out in the territory of Masate, a small municipality of about 3.5 thousand inhabitants located in the north-eastern part of the Metropolitan City of Milan.

The presentation was attended by: Pamela Tumiati, Mayor of Masate, Michela Palestra, councilor delegate Environment Metropolitan City of Milan, Alessandro Russo, President of CAP Group, Andrea Lanuzza, General Director Management CAP Group and Barbara Meggetto, President of Legambiente Lombardia.
Cinzia Davoli, Project manager of the LIFE Metro Adapt project, explained to the audience the importance of being able to export similar projects to the territories of neighboring municipalities, and Marco Callerio, Head of the Invariance of Hydraulics of CAP Group, went into the details of the intervention explaining its technical aspects.
