The Austrian government will carry out a new assessment next week of a possible opening to Italy, Schallenberg announced. “We see – he added – that the situation in Italy has greatly improved and that some regions, such as South Tyrol, have good Covid data”. Vienna will therefore “seriously” consider Bolzano’s proposal to allow travel to some Italian regions. “The goal remains openness to Italy, as soon as the data allows it,” concluded the minister.
“Individualisms violate the community spirit and damage Europe and the single market”. According to what has been learned, Minister Luigi Di Maio said during a meeting with his staff, following the Vienna decision to keep the border with Italy still closed. In the afternoon there will be a phone call with the Austrian counterpart. The minister is however confident that the story, in the next few days, can develop positively for Italy.
