“We’re fully aware of the difficult situation, but everything we’re doing, we’re doing it as safely as possible and with the utmost respect for everyone’s needs,” said Claudio Trotta, Barley Arts manager and longtime Springsteen promoter. “For fifteen days we were under constant rain, 500-600 millimeters of rain fell compared to an average of 55 millimeters in this area in May. Thanks to an extraordinary team, to the commitment of the workers, we are in an optimal situation from the point of view of the production of the show and the launch of the arena. Tomorrow, when we open the doors, we will be sure that everything will be fine.”

The answer to the controversy

Compared to the emergency of these days “we are perfectly aware of the drama of the flooded areas. But Ferrara is not a red zone, the schools have not been closed, the weather events are running out as indicated by the forecasts and also the institutions». In addition, “the civil protection units of Ferrara are dedicated to the affected areas, they have transported materials to Cesenatico and Forlì and that is why the firefighters have also worked in the flooded areas: I want to clarify this – he underlines – to refute those who accuse. we have to use public resources, which is totally false.

The viability

Viability problems remain, “but only some sections of the A14 motorway are closed, under constant surveillance, and the Adriatica can be used as an alternative. The airports are open, the special trains we have organized with Trenitalia and Barley Arts are all confirmed”. “The Supervisory Council just met here and the situation is under control. We have been working on this event for years, if anyone had been here these days they would have breathed an air of passion and care for this work. I am convinced that tomorrow will be a memorable day”, he concludes. The Boss and the E Street Band are expected on May 21 at Rome’s Circus Maximus and on July 25 at Prato della Gerascia at the Monza Racecourse, a date that will close Springsteen’s European tour.
