Rome Mayor Gianni Alemanno says Rome is preparing a 10-year construction and development plan in its bid for the 2020 Summer Olympic Games.
Alemanno said Thursday he was confident the National Olympic Committee CONI will choose Rome over the three other Italian cities – Venice, Palermo and Bari – also interested in bidding for the 2020 Games.
The Associated Press reports the city already has a number of venues built. It hosted the 1960 Games and lost out to Athens in 2004.
Rome will announce its bid plan in January.
