“A serious journalist and a very good person: it seems little, but it can be said of very few”. Thus Lucia Annunziata, former president of Rai and director of Tg3, reminds AdnKronos of the figure of David Sassoli. “Among us women, jokingly, we always said that he was the son-in-law that every mother would like to have for her daughter: handsome, serious, a very sweet person and hard worker … It was a funny and affectionate way to speak well of him”. Was he also the reporter that every editor would like to have? “Of course, that’s for sure! – replies Annunziata – And when she decided to go to Brussels we were all surprised, since she had a brilliant career ahead of her; but it was a very nice step, because she didn’t make like many others, even many committed journalists in politics, who first make a commitment and then leave it halfway and go home. He, no: he went to be a European parliamentarian, working seriously and working hard, until he became meritoriously president of the EU Parliament “. a simple figurine in the album of European parliamentarians … “Exactly, he was a protagonist, also recognized outside Italy and in fact his appointment was born first in Brussels and then was formally proposed by Rome”, remembers Lucia Annunziata. “I was lucky enough to have him often a guest in my show ‘In mezz’ora’, he had recently refused to come but it was not understood that the reason was related to his health conditions: this too was a gesture of great style. . The news of his death really struck me very much “. (By Enzo Bonaiuto)
