"We do not have a list of sensitive sites, it is not fixed. I have several times called on the prefects to revise such sites on the territory under their control since I took office," he said at a press conference at the Association of Foreign Press in Rome.
"Our strategy is to ensure security and control of the places and sites under threat [from terrorists], which have been categorized as such based on the assessments of our experts," he continued.
Over the past two weeks, a wave of attacks has occurred in Europe, including a truck running over a crowd in France's Nice and a suicide bombing near an open-air music festival in Ansbach, a city in the German state of Bavaria, which has pushed Europe to urgently and extensively boost its safety and security measures.
On July 28, Italy's Defense Minister Roberta Pinotti said that there was currently no country in the world with a zero risk of a terrorist attack.
