A big step forward, even if the direction is still uncertain. The meeting that took place this morning within the Public and Private Work Commission of the Chamber of Deputies chaired by the Hon. Moffa certainly stirred things up on the Sigma Tau dispute. At the opening of the proceedings, the Commission immediately gave the floor to the company, which was represented by the CEO dott.
