The SwissMetro-NG association is currently being reorganized. Niccolò Salvioni, lawyer and notary from Locarno, son of Dr. Sergio Salvioni, former Swiss Senator (TI) and president of the original Swissmetro Ltd, is currently working to ensure that the association reflects Switzerland’s linguistic, regional, cultural, political and entrepreneurial diversity and strength. The idea would be to develop a collegial leadership structure that reflects and incorporates these country-specific Swiss sensibilities and innovation capabilities.
