(ANSA) – ASSISI (PERUGIA), MARCH 15 – “Reducing energy consumption is a moral obligation on the part of everyone, especially in this historical moment”. This is the reason that prompted the municipal administration of Assisi together with the Sacred Convent to turn off the lights of the Rocca Maggiore and the Basilica of San Francesco from 11 pm every night.
“We believe it is a duty – say the mayor Stefania Proietti and the caretaker Fra Marco Moroni – to adopt virtuous behaviors that go in a double direction. environmental protection but as a sign of peace, in response to the repercussions of the energy crisis linked to the war in Ukraine. The first concrete means of emancipation from fossil fuels and also from methane gas is in fact the reduction of energy consumption, an action within everyone’s reach . Faced with such a painful and complex situation we must all feel and be committed, each of us can do our part and even small gestures can have a value in order to make the use of energy resources more efficient and at the same time send a message of change, of true ecological transition, but also of solidarity and peace “.
