Elections, Renzi:

(ANSA) – TURIN, 11 AUG – “The courage and freedom to always choose, day by day, with great discretion but a lot of determination, without fear, in difficult times like the 70s and 80s, this characterized Gianni and Franco. They never backed down. ” Marco Zorzan was the godson of Gianni Reinetti and thus remembers his cousin, who, together with his life partner, Franco Perrello, became a symbol of the struggle for rights. A 52-year long love crowned in 2016 with what was the first civil union of a gay couple.

Marco and his brother Fabrizio are with their mother, Silvana Reinetti, in the room that welcomed the rosary for Gianni, who died two days ago at the age of 84. Silvana is the cousin who stayed with him until the end. To her, Franco and Gianni had witnessed her marriage and years later, with her husband, she had done it to theirs. “I have wonderful memories of Gianni and my uncles – she says -, the beautiful card games together, the periods I spent with them as a child, the pranks I used to do and that Gianni, older than 10 years, used to tell me. a brother and I am happy that he and Franco have managed to be themselves, to fulfill their dream of getting married and also to become a symbol for many people, for those who are young and perhaps do not dare to say that they are homosexual or for this reason they are thrown out of family or he cannot be himself. I am happy – she concludes – that they were able to live the life they wanted and I thank very much all the associations for their commitment and all the institutions and people who in recent days have made us feel their closeness “.
