(ANSA) – CATANIA, JUL 18 – “Those who arrive in Catania understand that the city has not forgotten and continues not to turn their heads the other way. Here are remembered men and women who gave their lives so that Sicily and Italy are part of a country where the law is not an option, but a condition of life for everyone. It strikes me above all to see the places where Falcone and Borsellino were born. It means that Sicily can save Sicily “. Thus the metropolitan archbishop Luigi Renna at the inauguration, on the eve of the thirtieth anniversary of the Mafia massacres in Capaci and via D’Amelio, in the arrivals area of the Vincenzo Bellini international airport, of the photographic exhibition of ANSA, with texts and images, entitled ‘ Falcone Borsellino’s legacy.
“This – added Msgr. Renna – must teach us not to be resigned, to walk with our strength on our legs. Falcone and Borsellino and Rita Atria, who will take her own life after the massacre in via D’Amelio, teach us all of this.
Blessed are the peoples who do not forget these things, they do not forget what happened thirty years ago “.
“This place is a transit, a place of passage – underlined the prefect Maria Carmela Librizzi – but also of reflection for those returning from holidays and for tourists. This exhibition allows us to reach the goal of not being indifferent and to remind us of what it happened and it cannot and must not happen anymore: a commitment against all types of crime “.
“This exhibition – noted the regional councilor for the Family, Antonio Scavone – is an iconographic journey without rhetoric, to remind everyone of the noblest history of Sicily, made up of courage and passion with the exercise of one’s duty to the point of also accepting the extreme sacrifice. Our land is noble thanks to the example of Falcone and Borsellino “.
“This exhibition is an example of the struggle of our region in the fight against the mafia – said the president of Sac, Giovanna Candura, present at the inauguration with the CEO Nico Torrisi – and as a greater example of Falcone and Borsellino and of the their teams may be, of men who believed in the possibility of wresting this land of ours from the mafia’s malaplant. In this airport, travelers can reflect on what our island has shown they know. Remembering is important above all by looking forward and thinking about young generations with the example of ‘martyrs’ who believed in their duty “The exhibition, created ten years ago and now updated, with texts by journalists Francesco Nuccio and Franco Nicastro and with images from the ANSA archive, as well as photos unpublished from the family album of the two magistrates, over the years it has been hosted among other things at the Chamber of Deputies, the European Parliament in Brussels and the Sicily Regional Assembly na.
