(ANSA) – GENOA, 14 JUN – “We are thinking of naming a street or a square, the rule says that we have to wait ten years but let’s see if we can overcome it. Certainly we have to do something. We have no precise ideas, but if any citizen if he had any, let us get them “. Thus the mayor Marco Bucci reveals the intentions of the administration to remember the former mayor Giuseppe Pericu, who died yesterday at the age of 84, after an illness. Bucci talked about it coming out of the funeral home set up in Palazzo Tursi in the mayor’s office, where he spent about 30 minutes talking with Pericu’s family. “I spoke with the family who appreciated having made the Municipality available for the funeral home – he said – people are arriving in large numbers and I am pleased, the Municipality must do these things because whoever has made the mayor, remains so throughout his life, and it must be shown that the city recognizes who has served it and who has been busy for so long “.
The first citizen recalled the many important things done by Pericu. “Genoa European capital of culture was a great moment for the city and the strength it put into managing the G8 in 2001 is a bit like the strength we had in managing the collapse of the bridge: when there are misfortunes in the city the mayor must work hard. He did it, he is a good example for everyone “. (HANDLE).
