The Mayor Cateno De Luca in accepting the invitation that the President of the Anci Antonio Decaro addressed to all the Italian Mayors has proclaimed for tomorrow, Tuesday 23, the display of the flags of the Municipal Palace at half mast as a sign of condolences for the brutal execution of the Italian ambassador to the Democratic Republic of Congo, Luca Attanasio, of Vittorio Iacovacci, the carabiniere of his escort, and of Mustapha Milambo, the driver who accompanied them, which left all the Italians dismayed. “It is in the name of all Italians, to honor the memory of these men and the mourning that has affected their families, that I ask all Italian Mayors – invites President Decaro – to display the flag at half mast tomorrow. Following the example of what was decided by the Mayor of Limbiate, the Municipality where Attanasio was born, and associating ourselves with the intention of all the representatives of the national institutions, we show together, as a single community, our participation in the families who have lost their their loved ones and our belonging to the country of which Attanasio and Iacovacci were loyal servants ”.
