The new municipal councillor for culture, Umberto Croppi, has declared that the planned car park under the Pincio on Piazza del Popolo side of Villa Borghese will not go ahead. According to the Corriere della Sera of 9 June, Croppi, while responding to questions, said categorically that the controversial car park would not be built. The car park was to hold over 700 cars on seven levels and to have made the part of the city near Piazza del Popolo more accessible and was to have made the Trident (that is, Via del Corso, Via Ripetta, and Via Babuino) pedestrian.
