The history of Minimetrò spa and its achievement. In April 1998, the Municipality of Perugia created Minimetrò spa, a joint-stock company with majority public capital. The company’s task is to design, build and operate a light rail system, called Minimetrò, as an innovative and alternative urban mobility system for a total length of 3,863.2 linear metres. The final project of the Minimetrò, the section of Pian di Massiano-Pincetto Centro, was approved in October 2002 for a total amount of about 60 million euros. Subsequently, the Project is adapted on the basis of ministerial provisions, the indications of the architect Jean Nouvel, who is entrusted with the artistic direction of the design, and the indications on the technological works carried out by Leitner. The works end in 2008, the year of the opening of the Minimetrò.
