medical assistance. He was an Accountant, well known in Torricella for
his calmness and for his professional and political abilities. This
event shook many people in the village and there were a very large
number of people taking part in the funeral procession.

On 11 May of this year a person
very dear to my family passed away, as defined by my father, “the
smallest and mightiest of the Ficcas”…..my uncle the Accountant Mario
Ficca. I would like him to be remembered as deserved, because he loved
Torricella so much that he returned after spending many years in
Pescara, because he respected everyone, never uttering a bad word,
always understanding, willing to dialogue, active in politics to find
together ways of bettering Torricella!
And then, because he love us,
his family, my aunt, my cousins…..all of us.
A personal thought……..a special
thank you from me because you taught me so much, because you always
listened to, helped and comforted me and because I miss you so
much……thank you uncle from the bottom of my heart, thank you.
