«As an Administration we are constantly working to seize every financing opportunity useful for improving the appearance and liveability of public spaces – comments the Deputy Mayor and Councilor for Public Works, lawyer. Rocco Mansueto. – Creating areas for outdoor sports accessible to all is an important factor in promoting well-being and in revaluing places otherwise underutilized. In this case we are going to pay attention to an older user, for which the benefits deriving from physical activity are known, giving further social significance to the intervention.“.
“The goal of improving the functionality and decor of public spaces continues to be pursued, in synergy, by encouraging outdoor sports – adds the Councilor for Urban Decor, Christmas Conforti. – The first intervention carried out in the area received a very positive response from the people of Nocesi, who already used to choose the green area of Via Di Vittorio to run and keep fit and we are sure that they will also appreciate this further implementation. Moreover, the restoration of the existing benches, which are currently damaged, is also planned in the area“.
“The implementation of well-being promotion policies, also through sport, was part of our program, in which we had the ambition to create the conditions to make Noci a “city of health” – declares the Mayor, dr. Domenico Nisi. – With these interventions, the so-called “citizenship sport” is promoted: creating spaces for outdoor socializing for all ages is made of civilization, in the sense of promoting equal opportunities, contrasting the phenomenon of isolation and greater livability of our neighborhoods“.
