The family of solidarity gathered in the Delegation of the Cuban Institute of Friendship with the Peoples (ICAP) of this province of eastern Cuba to pay homage to Franco Polito, who died here on May 6.


Las Tunas, Cuba.- Representatives of the Cuban Communist Party, the Government, the Coordination in Lombardy of the Italy-Cuba National Association of Friendship (Anaic), social organizations and the different institutions in which the Italian activist lent his collaboration over more than 15 years, as a member of the Giovanni Ardizzone volunteer work brigade, expressed their condolences.

His enthusiastic impulse to the realization of the Giustino-Fabio Di Celmo children's soccer cup was recalled during the evening, in which the attendees signed a book of condolences. "He deserves a place for his passion and dedication," said Franco Tonon, secretary of the Anaic circle in Lodi, who also thanked all the support they have received in this moment of pain.

"Franco Polito will always be in our hearts ... cheerful, cooperative, helpful, humane, supportive, simple, fair, hardworking and responsible. His death is one of those dirty tricks of fate because he will be forever the friend, with that strength capable of multiplying in young people who will follow from the distant Italy his indelible marks ... ", said María Romero, delegate of ICAP in Las Tunas.

"Here, in this eastern piece of Cuba, the hands that sustain us in that miracle that unites and turns sadness into light ... the infinite friendship and the memory of a good man. Rest in peace, dear Franco, " she concluded.
