Rome mayor rules out ski event at Circus Maximus


(ANSA) - Rome, October 18 - Rome Mayor Gianni Alemanno on
Thursday ruled out hosting an event on Alpine skiing's World Cup
circuit at the famed Ancient Roman Circus Maximus site.
"The idea of hosting the competition in one of the most
precious historic areas is out of the question," Alemanno said
shortly after a World Cup organiser said the ancient chariot
racetrack would be an unmatched venue for a World Cup City
"There's no better place in the world to host the City
Event. I believe in this project," said Guenther Hujara, the
chief race director for the World Cup and technical delegate to
the Italian government.
Hujara was in Rome Thursday surveying the Circus Maximus,
which today is a grassy public park.
Alemanno, himself a keen mountaineer and skier, voiced his
"utmost willingness" to help the Italian winter-sports
federation FISI find an alternative, "more suitable" venue.
