Mayor Corsaro said: “We will improve the functioning and functionality of a historic factory of the city of Vercelli. The cups on display here in the press room tell of the prestige and the results obtained by the clubs that revolve around this structure. The investment is significant and will allow the building to become one of the most important in the Piedmont region for wheels.”
