“I can’t think about it – said Daniela Maggi, councilor for sport -. I heard it a few days ago, because we are preparing the open day of sport in the city. He was forming a nice group with the other guys from the civil service, here in common, who were all shocked. She was polite, reserved, she was the expression of her family. You can’t die like that“.
