Grosseto municipality receives 4 Blue Sails

During the opening night of the 35th edition of Festambiente, municipalities in the province of Grosseto received the Sails from Legambiente and Touring Club Italiano.

As every year, Legambiente’s goal was to reward bathing waters, the effectiveness of separate waste collection, good management of water resources, but also the efficiency of services, the enhancement of the landscape and local productions. Unlike Blue Flags, Sails take into account the overall quality of a resort’s tourism offerings, signaling the commitment of different administrations to environmental protection and sustainable development.

Receiving the 4 Blue Sails won by the City of Grosseto was Environment Councillor Erika Vanelli.

“I am grateful for this recognition that represents an important calling card for all potential tourists who choose to take their vacations on our coasts,” commented the alderman. “We have done and are doing a lot for our sea, our coast and our territory. Never before has the focus on the coastline been as high as this year, with the promotion of beach cleaning initiatives and the dune and retro dune system. We have also focused a lot on services, from waste management to sustainable mobility, and we will continue to strive for more and more positive results.”

Also satisfied was Grosseto Mayor Antonfrancesco Vivarelli Colonna.

“Our municipality is constantly working to promote sustainable development of the territory and our coast,” he said, “We will work on actions and paths of sustainability, awareness of good practices and environmental policies that will allow us to achieve more and more concrete results and raise the bar in terms of the environment.”

A city accessible to large urban areas

The city of Grosseto lies on the Rome-Livorno road axis and is connected to the large urban areas of Siena and Florence via the E78.


With regard to the Rome-Livorno axis (the so-called Tirrenica), the Italian government has announced that in 2025 work will begin on upgrading and securing one of the territory’s main road axes, with plans to upgrade, among other things, the Grosseto south-San Pietro in Palazzi section and the central section from Ansedonia to Grosseto.


As for the Siena-Grosseto link, work is under way to upgrade the E78 to four lanes .

The work specifically concerns a section of about 11.8 kilometers and affects the municipalities of Sovicille, Murlo and Monticiano.


The work, for a total investment of 195 million euros, consists of upgrading the SS223 “di Paganico” to four lanes by building a new carriageway alongside the existing one.


Grosseto also has a civil airport (Grosseto Airport-Seam Spa), which currently serves private flights, with a very strong charter traffic of about 1,500 charter flights a year for business and tourist visits.
