Venezia, November 23 - Cash-strapped administrators
in Venice are pushing to relocate three justices of the peace
whose medieval offices in St Mark's Square cost 2.6 million
euros a year in annual expenses.
Mayor Giorgio Orsoni has moved to relocate the 11-person
staff to newly built offices in Piazzale Roma, near the train
station.
The city has already relocated offices for the anti-mafia
administration and various police organs, which were previously
located next to the justices' offices in the historic Procuratie
Vecchie, owned and rented out by insurance giant Assicurazioni
Generali.
"It was one of the things I've wanted to eliminate as soon
as possible," said the mayor. "But the lease wasn't up with
Generali. We had to negotiate".
The Procuratie Vecchie, literally Old Procuracies, date
back to the 12th century and were offices for Venetian
administrators during the Republic's ascent to empire and until
its fall at the end of the 18th century.
