It is the traditional delivery of merits on the occasion of the anniversary of the patron of Brianza, Luigi Talamoni, but this year follows a particular ceremony in the memory of Ambassador Luca Attanasio, killed in Congo in February 2021.
The delivery of the Beato Talamoni award is scheduled for Saturday 23 October 2021, at 10 am, in the new gymnasium of the Ettore Majorana scientific and classical high school in Desio, which for the occasion will be named after the diplomat from Limbiate. In fact, Attanasio had been a student of the institute.
“Also this year we wanted to give our Talamoni Award a different cut, bringing our traditional ceremony to an unusual place like a gym. Months ago, the news of the death of Ambassador Luca Attanasio really struck us deeply and as a Province we wanted to express the will to do something concrete to give continuity to its strong bond with the territory: hence the idea of bringing memory of him among the young people, in the school he attended, naming the gymnasium we built after him. We think that celebrating provincial merits in the same place is a really way to involve young people by bringing into their everyday life examples of life and beautiful stories of people and associations that work for the good of this land “, explains the president of the MB Province Luca Santambrogio.
During the ceremony, the delivery of 5 medals and 5 plaques with special mention for the meritorious of Monza and its province is scheduled.
