Italian PM Giuseppe Conte Is Considering Digging A Tunnel Between The Mainland And Sicily

• by Tyler Durden

The U.S. has already vowed to start making drug components domestically and President Trump has long been proposing infrastructure upgrades. 

And in keeping with the trend of upgrading infrastructure - which hasn't quite been Italy's expertise anytime over the last few decades - Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte has now said he is considering an underwater tunnel that links Sicily to mainland Italy. 

Conte mulled the plans during a speech he gave on Sunday evening in which he announced several plans that appear to be focused on the country maintaining its infrastructure independence. Before building such a tunnel, Conte said that the country would need to improve its internal routes first. 

As of today, Sicily is still the only region of Italy which cannot be serviced by the country's "Eurostar" trains.
