The Provincial Commander of the Carabinieri of Palermo, General Giuseppe De Liso, presented the Historical Calendar of the Carabinieri 2023, this year dedicated to the protection of the environment. Judge Giovanni Falcone is also mentioned in the calendar. In particular, as part of the national project called ‘A tree for the future’, organized by the Arma for the creation of a large widespread forest of legality, which provides for the donation and planting in Italian schools of hundreds of thousands of seedlings . Among these, a tree symbolizing the commitment against the mafias: the tree of Judge Falcone. Some gems of the famous Ficus were collected thanks to the collaboration between the Carabinieri, the Falcone Foundation, the Municipality and Superintendency of Palermo and duplicated in the modern Carabinieri National Center for Forest Biodiversity in Pieve Santo Stefano (Arezzo). “The memory of the Judge will live forever, linked to environmental protection, in line with the dictates of the Constitution”, reads the calendar. The historical calendar was unveiled to the general public in Rome by the Commander General, General CA Teo Luzi. Presenting the work, created by a visionary graphic company, leader in the world of communication: the Armando Testa Group, in the splendid setting of the Auditorium Parco della Musica, was the famous television and radio host Amadeus. The protagonist of the 2023 Historical Calendar is Nature, which has always been one of the weapon’s absolute priorities. Suffice it to say that already in the Royal Patents of 1816 in chapter V, n. 34, we read verbatim: arrest the ravagers of woods, or of any harvest in the countryside, as well as all those who were found in the act of spoiling the roads, the trees planted along them, hedges, ditches, and the like , […]In a context where the environment is the most precious resource to be safeguarded, the 2023 edition was entirely dedicated to environmental protection. Engaged every day in the defense of people, the planet and prosperity, the Weapon daily carries out a work of prevention and repression of illegal environmental and forestry, protecting the landscape, woods, flora and fauna and fighting crimes on waste matters. The commitment of the Carabinieri does not stop at the prevention and repression of crimes and illegalities with an environmental impact, but considers the continuous dialogue with the new generations to be equally fundamental.
