She was elected mayor in the first round of this year’s local elections with 70.68% of the vote, supported by a centre-right coalition. She is the first woman to hold this position.
The appointment as President of Latium Experience was ratified on Thursday, July 13, by the Board of the DMO. In the same session, the entry of the new mayor of Pomezia Veronica Felici was also formalized – again as per Statute, she took over the role of Board member from the former Commissioner of Pomezia.
Statement by Paola Cosimi, General Manager of Latium Experience
We all warmly welcome the new President, who has already had words of high appreciation for the work done up to now, expressing, as Mayor, her favour in evaluating the continuation of the project, unanimously with the other councilors. This is an extremely fervent moment for Latina and its province, also thanks to a new Bill proposal on the centenary of the city, which will fall in 2032. As President Celentano says, it is a unique opportunity to internationally launch Latina with a cultural and stable project.
The institutions will receive passionate and professional support from the DMO, according to an approach that has shown great effectiveness in almost a year and a half of synergies.
