At the Chiara Lubich Centre we learnt with great sorrow the news of the untimely death of Emanuele Crestini, Mayor of Rocca di Papa. In our recent meetings with him, we had just begun to know him and to appreciate his down-to-earth commitment to the township, his dedication and his exquisite humanity. The legacy that he leaves behind is that of being an exemplary citizen who truly knew how to “give his life” to the people entrusted to him.

While we assure our closeness to Dr Veronica Cimino, Deputy Mayor, and to the whole community of Rocca di Papa, we ask Our Lady to welcome Emanuele into the heavenly homeland, confident that from there he will continue to watch over his family and his beloved city.

We extend our deepest sympathy and affection to the members of his family,

Alba Sgariglia, Joao Manoel Motta and all at the Chiara Lubich Centre
