Pro Loco, despite attending these meetings, has not expressed a willingness to organize any event and, too late, according to our ongoing reminders, recently launched the membership campaign to outline the new social structure. Therefore, although she has not been an active part in the preparation of the program, the cooperation with us and with the other associations, we are nevertheless satisfied that she has shown signs of improvement after several months of inertia, thanks to our repeated inquiries , and we hope she returns to be the focal point of attractive proposals for our country. We are in the middle of the summer, now we have to work on the realization of the events and we will do our best to ensure that the entire program is completed with commitment and precision ”.
