On the other hand, the pandemic trend and the level of vaccinations reached allow, in our opinion, to move outside the EU / Schengen area with more freedom, while maintaining all the safety measures still necessary at this stage ”, he continued. Gattinoni.
” On the other hand, a radical change of approach is needed and on this ground the Italian government should comply with the recommendation of the European Council, added the president Ftoaccording to which a regulation based on regional maps colored according to the levels of contagion must be abandoned, except for the dark red areas, and instead we must move to measures calibrated on the status of the individual traveler ”.
“The Minister Speranza should also listen to the EU which recommends to member states uniformity on the validity of the green pass at nine months, while our legislation, which from 1 February provides for a limited duration of six months for those who do not yet have the booster, is causing thousands of cancellations of trips and presences in Italy and is creating further damage to the organized tourism sector ”, he concluded Gattinoni.
