Salini Impregilo and Fincantieri Infrastructure, subsidiary of Fincantieri, were awarded the contract to rebuild the bridge across the Polcevera River in Genoa according to a design by architect Renzo Piano. The two companies will work together by creating a new company called “PERGENOVA” with the aim of completing the structure in 12 months from the moment work at the site can begin following the demolition of the old bridge.

“Twelve months to help relaunch Genoa. That is the dream that we are hoping to give the Genoese before Christmas in memory of the victims of this terrible tragedy: to relaunch the city as quickly possible and send a strong message to the entire country. Public works can kickstart the economy and start to create jobs again,” said Pietro Salini, Chief Executive of Salini Impregilo, in welcoming the decision of Genoa Mayor Marco Bucci, who is also commissioner of the reconstruction effort.
