In the passage from the Fiat of the Agnelli at the Multinational Stellantis, Marchionne’s Italian-American period was involved. But it is clear that the Italian auto industry it has gradually lost its central role, leaving room for negotiations, fears and discussions about jobs. For this reason, for Turin – a city that has experienced a very close relationship with the automotive industry for years – always having a gateway to Stellantis is essential.
According to the newspaper La Stampa, the mayor of Turin Stefano Lo Russo will meettogether with the President of the Region Alberto Cirio, the managing director of the Stellantis group, Carlos Tavares, for a comparison on the future of the car in Turin and Piedmont. Lo Russo visited Mirafiori on March 3.
“With the President of the Region we are united in considering the Stellantis issue as a priority. We were told that all Maserati productions will be located in Mirafiori and that all production of the electric 500 will be brought. We have elements that lead us to look to the future of the plant with confidence. Mirafiori for Turin is and will be a fundamental element in our industrial and manufacturing vocation. The plant technicians are also confident, but also worried because, as in all transformation processes, the overall logic of the group changes. I recorded the greatest fears in the sales area and in that design. The City will collaborate with the group to try to understand how to accompany the transition by observing what the repercussions may be on the territory. It is necessary to make a general reflection on what can be the tools to support the transition to electricity. This is a sensitive issue for relapses and we need to think about production lines. I think all the engineering and research parts can find a competitive ecosystem in TurinSaid Lo Russo.
In short, the renewal of the industry could collide with the loss of a strategic role in the large-scale production of automobiles. This is the major fear of the institutions. A joint effort will therefore be needed, as they say, to convince Stellantis that Turin production is convenient in terms of infrastructure, supply chain, materials and market.
