Key events of the reporting period are described below.

ITALY

During the period, the variation to the T3 section (Colosseo/S.Giovanni) of line C of the Rome metro was recognised for approximately €41 million.

With respect to line 4 of the Milan metro (S. Cristoforo - Linate), the actual amount of the ancillary agreement approximated €47 million. This agreement, which was signed by the parties in June, marks the launch of activities, pending the completion of the process which will lead to the signing of the concession agreement.
