” I thought that Scampia was the ideal place for this project, born from a proposal by Stefano Ceci and which I discussed with President De Laurentiis – said the mayor, Gaetano Manfredi – because I believe that Maradona represents the symbol of the redemption of a man who with his talent has managed to reach the top of the world of football. In this way, the statue of Maradona will be the collective heritage of the fans not only inside the stadium but in the city and bringing it to Scampia is a sign of redemption of one of the neighborhoods that have the greatest difficulties in the collective imagination ”.

The occasion to announce this next project was the delivery to the mayor by Ceci of a miniature of the statue depicting Maradona which is inside the stadium. ” In this building on 5 July 2017 Maradona was awarded honorary citizenship – recalled Ceci – and therefore I decided to pay homage to the mayor with the same statue already donated to Calcio Napoli and thus kept the promise that I made that day to Diego ”. In the Giunta room of Palazzo San Giacomo, also present the president of Calcio Napoli, Aurelio De Laurentiis, who received as a gift a limited edition reproduction of Maradona’s left foot: ” Diego does not need to be commented, he needs to find its definitive and right placement on this territory and we will do it with this project ”.
