A historic Italian journalist and a voice that has accompanied the Italian national football team for several years, Bruno Pizzul was interviewed this morning on the pages of Tuttosport to talk about a subject very dear to him. This is San Siro , the stadium at the center of public debate due to the projects of Inter and Milan which, for the construction of a new and modern facility in the same area, would like to demolish. As expected, Pizzul said he was against the disappearance of Meazza, inviting two clubs to find other solutions. Your statements:
She commented on the first match of Italia '90, at San Siro between Argentina and Cameroon … "Unforgettable that day, for anyone doing this job. The first of a World Cup, in a stadium built for big football, full colorful, full of healthy support, a great party in a stadium that everybody still envies us in. Now there are only a few facilities left and whoever comes to Milan also comes to visit the stadium, he can't help it ".
What is your idea about the possibility of knocking down San Siro to build a new, more modern and functional stadium? "I would do anything to keep him there, we are talking about a monument, a football stadium where the game is very well seen. I am not nostalgic for a football that is no longer there but I am surprised to hear about functional stadiums , built for families, for aggregation. It is a way to increase revenue. Because there is no need for a shopping center to create aggregation, there is the game. Perhaps we should increase the show in the field. .. ".
He is not the only one who lives by memories … "The fact that there is a strong movement that is against demolition makes me hope. There is fear of a new pouring of cement on the city, of losing the green and maybe also the area of the Hippodrome that is always being questioned. I believe that those who live in Milan, who live the city every day have more than a doubt about this project … ".
Is San Siro worth the Cathedral? "If we want to play with the sacred and the profane, yes, of course. After all even in football there has always been something mystical, a certain sacredness that must be respected. Who would throw down one of the symbols of Milan?
San Siro as National Stadium? "It could be, it would be a good idea but I don't think Rome would agree to give up its centrality. However, you could think of building the stadium as already mentioned in another area, to be redeveloped leaving the history intact."
If today instead of a Chinese property in great expansion of an American Fund there were still Moratti and Berlusconi? "Of course the two properties of today do not help. Missing flag players like missing flag presidents. Lack the passion, there is a certain disaffection with certain values, with memories. I believe that with Massimo Moratti and Silvio Berlusconi it would not have happened. The existence of the San Siro would never have been questioned. I think they would have had common sense and looked for other solutions because the identity, the history of a city and of two teams that represent the world are at stake … ".
