A crane in southern Italy can cost up to 50,000 euros ($57,000) and can require a licence for one to operate.
The crane can carry up to 200 people and can cost as much as 2 million euros.
But it is legal to operate as long as you are licensed to do so in Italy.
The main reason for this is the construction of the Colle d’Este, which is a bridge across the Tiber River which connects Italy with southern Spain.
“It’s quite an expensive undertaking but it is important for the bridge and the country’s economy.
It is essential to make sure that people do not have to go into the river, which causes damage to the ecosystem,” said Francesco Gattoni, a senior official at the construction site.
In order to operate a crane, a crane must be registered as an industry unit.
The building permits for crane work are issued by the ministry of construction and a crane operator must be an industry member.
However, a large number of crane operators are not registered and therefore cannot be licensed.
“In order for a crane to operate in Italy, you must be able to register as an industrial undertaking,” Gattani explained.
“So you need a licence to do this.
The permits are issued and you are required to keep them up to date.”
The permit can only be renewed once every three years, and the renewal process can take up to six months.
This year, the crane owner had to renew his licence six times in a row.
“I have had a number of people ask me how long the crane will last,” said Gattini.
He also said the cost of a crane license in Italy is very expensive, especially when considering that most of the construction is done by private firms.
“You need a company which has a strong reputation.
You need a lot of money,” he said.
