It is with great pleasure that I introduce Autostrade per l'Italia's Fact Book.
In our interactions with various stakeholders we find ourselves faced with the fact that the extent and the detail of our activities are, all too often, little known and confused.
It's a shame. A better understanding of our world could give rise to further ideas and opportunities both for ourselves, for institutions and for those travelling on the motorway.
Hence the Fact Book, a reference "map" of our strategic objectives, our investments, our services, our operating procedures and of the applicable legislative and regulatory framework. We hope that reading this publication may lead to ideas, suggestions, proposals and, where applicable, constructive criticism.
Our operational capabilities and our credibility on the international financial markets, makes us a resource for Italy and for the future of the Italian people.
But we would like to - and could- be so much more.
Mr. Giovanni Castellucci
