COLLE UMBERTO. He had decided to wait a little longer before getting vaccinated. But Covid killed him. The agony of 64-year-old Alberto Turchetto, entrepreneur of Fag, the well-known foundry of Colle Umberto, lasted a month.
The man died on Thursday evening in the intensive care unit of the Vittorio Veneto hospital. His wife had also been infected, however she managed to overcome the disease.
Alberto Turchetto was a well-known figure throughout the province of Treviso. «It all started a month ago», his daughter Giorgia recalls, «at first he was hospitalized in the ward, then in intensive care. To be honest he seemed to be getting better. Recently we had received reassuring news from the doctors, but all of a sudden the situation precipitated until he died ».
The first symptoms of the Coronavirus did not cause particular concern. At first it was just a general feeling of discomfort, it seemed nothing to worry about, the classic lowering of the voice, without fever. The situation changed within a few days.
“The disease seemed not very aggressive”, continues the daughter, “unfortunately for my father the classic Covid pneumonia has been triggered”.
The virus also affected the entrepreneur’s wife, who nevertheless managed to manage the disease from home like a flu.
Both had not undergone the vaccination. They were convinced to let the summer pass, given that the number of infections had been low. However, they had decided to immunize themselves by the end of September, but unfortunately Covid reached them earlier.
Alberto Turchetto, a native of Vittorio Veneto, was trained with his father Luigi in the ancient foundry which was based in the city of Vittoria. The company continued its activity in 1963 in the municipality of Colle Umberto. Recently retired, Alberto continued to follow the foundry business with his brothers.
The entrepreneur’s funeral will be celebrated on Tuesday 12 October at 3.30 pm, in the archpriest church of Colle Umberto. He leaves his wife Annali, his daughters Giorgia and Alessia and his beloved grandchildren. After the funeral, the body will be buried in the Ceneda cemetery in Vittorio Veneto.
