Rome • Italian Premier Enrico Letta reiterated his support Wednesday for a possible bid for the 2024 Summer Olympics and promoted a new law to help build football stadiums.
"The Olympics in Italy is an objective within reach and a game we have to play," Letta said. "We must have lofty ambitions."
While Rome has not yet been officially selected, the capital — which hosted the 1960 Games — would be Italy's likely candidate.
Rome was the first city to declare its candidacy for the 2020 Olympics but then-Premier Mario Monti refused to provide government financial backing and the bid was dropped.
