Ravanusa, a square will remember the victims: mayor, “we are working on the redevelopment project”


Palermo, 31 Dec. – In Ravanusa, in the place where last December 11 an explosion sowed devastation and death, a square could be built dedicated to the nine victims of the tragedy. This is the project that the municipal administration headed by the mayor Carmelo D’Angelo is working on. “With the governor Nello Musumeci we have agreed a meeting between New Year’s Eve and Epiphany, with the Minister of Infrastructure Giovannini, however, the appointment is for the second / third decade of January”, the mayor told Adnkronos. On the table there is the urban reconstruction and regeneration project that will affect the neighborhood injured by the explosion that cost the lives of nine people, including a young mother in the ninth month of pregnancy. The idea is to rebuild some of the houses that were destroyed in another area, to create a large square in memory of the victims in the place of the massacre. “We are talking about regional and state resources that are absolutely within reach, according to a first estimate by the municipal technical office and Civil Protection will serve between 15 and 20 million euros”. The Musumeci government has already earmarked two million euros for the town of Agrigento. A “sign of closeness”, explains the mayor, still excited by the words of the head of state, Sergio Mattarella, who in his last speech at the end of the year recalled the community of Ravanusa. “I heard the words of the president here in the Town Hall – the mayor says still moved -, we are working to accommodate the last displaced people, six families in total but we have 18 accommodations available”. Almost 50 families, 130 people in all, were left homeless in the explosion. “Almost everyone has found accommodation – explains D’Angelo -, many are rented, others have settled with relatives. In all these days the institutions have been close to me, I heard the Sicilian governor, the heads of the National Civil Protection and Minister Giovannini. We discussed the emergency and the post-emergency “. The hope for 2022 is that” thanks to the synergistic work of the State and the Region, we can work on a major urban redevelopment project to allow those who have lost everything to return to have a roof and a bit of serenity “, he concludes.
