Leopoldine, match two between Quadratec and Saturnia

Montecatini. There is a two-way challenge for the Leopoldines, between Qc Terme (Quadratec Srl) and the new Terme di Saturnia.

Emissaries from these two companies have carried out inspections of the pinewood plant and the construction site for the construction of the thermal pool designed by the architect Massimiliano Fuksas, which has been in operation for over seven years. The first arrived in Montecatini on Friday last week, the second Tuesday, October 16th.

But there could be a shift: the aspiring investors have asked for an extension on the deadline of the call, from 30 to 60 days.

“We are evaluating this request with our lawyers, we are willing to give a maximum of 30 more days to receive the complex documentation – explains the sole director of Terme Spa, Alessandro Michelotti – if we extend the call, we will give a few more days to provision for mandatory inspection. ”
