On 3 August, a new bridge was opened in Genoa, Italy, in place of the one that tragically collapsed two years ago. Metinvest supplied 18.5 thousand tonnes of high-strength steel for it, the majority of the total used.
The opening of the bridge was a major event for Italy. The inauguration ceremony was attended by Sergio Mattarella, the president of Italy; Giuseppe Conte, the prime minister; Marco Bucci, the mayor of Genoa; Giovanni Toti, the governor of Liguria; and Renzo Piano, the project architect. Metinvest, the main supplier of steel for the project, was represented by the managing director of Metinvest Europe, Roberto Re, a native of Genoa.
