The fourth anniversary has passed with all the consequences that such a day could leave in us.
We have found, perhaps with some success, that Saturday was a day of mediation and prayer, but the memory and the affection of Milan is still large and as such this year we are surrounded by so many friends that also wish us well and are near us emotionally and physically.
The evening of the Concert at La Scala Theater was magical.
The atmosphere was absolutely charming. Mayor Alberini had given us an affectionate greeting of frienship and respect for what we are doing. The Maestro Roberto Abbado was splendid and the Philarmonic marvelous.
Who could have asked for more? I use this space to thank everyone who I could not mention during the official speech:
All the components of the Board of the Committee and particularly the tireless and precious Mirta, Piera, Adele and Sara.
To Sara I send from everyone a big hug. You are missed. Come back soon. To the great and sincere friend Marco Zibardi who accompanied our event with kindness and professionalism. To our friends at SEA, the City of Milan, and SAS, who have all collaborated greatly for the success of our anniversary. A thanks to all of you for your presence and support. Now we are organiziing the inauguration of the Gessate Piazza, Saturday, October 15, and for the Orzinuovi Park, Sunday, October 16, and after we will start to think about the 5th anniversary, which should be an important event. We will continue soon to work united toward a single objective and if, one day we manage to save even one life, then our efforts will have been worth it. A sincere embrace, Paolo Pettinaroli
