Nephrologist, he worked in the hospital in Ivrea. He was 66 years old. The memory of the team and the director of the medical department
IVREA. «Hi Luciano and thanks again for everything!».
It is a spontaneous, moved and grateful greeting that Ivrea rugby club addressed, on social media, to Dr. Luciano Comune whose funeral took place last Thursday 1, in Ivrea, in the church of San Lorenzo. Luciano Comune would have turned 67 on 30 August. Graduated in medicine in 198, specialized in nephrology and then in medicine and holistic therapy, he worked in the hospital in Ivrea. At Ivrea rugby, Luciano Comune was very close.
“Anyone who has been attending our club for some time – the Ivrea team pointed out – has certainly known him: father of rugby players and our team doctor for several years, always available to help children and society, even when he was called to last for medical assistance in the field. We like to remember him with his characteristic walk on the pitch where he occasionally got lost during matches, to the point that once by mistake a player passed him the ball and he ran for a few meters ».
It is an affectionate memory and as informal as it is felt, the one that ends with a strong hug to his wife Marie Christine, to his sons Giacomo and Matteo and to their families. Hug that many, among the myriads of people he met in his life too soon ended, have ideally shared, not being able to physically express it due to the stringent anti-contagion rules.
A no less profound pain was expressed by Dr. Silvana Savoldi, director of the Department of the medical area and of the Nephrology and dialysis structure of the ASL / To4, where Comune had worked for years: “With so much sadness we mourn the premature death of our colleague and, above all, , friend Luciano, a few months after retirement, after an entire work activity in the Nephrology and Dialysis of this Asl. His good soul, his smile, his generous availability were a real support in facing and alleviating the difficulties of work and we will miss them. Furthermore, many will lack his ability to find the right words of comfort and to make him smile again. He will certainly remain an example for his sons Giacomo and Matteo and will remain in the hearts of his wife Marie Christine and of all of us. We wish him to ride now on the fastest and lightest racing bicycles that we cannot find ».
These are words that go beyond the usual formulas, becoming an expression of sincere pain for a person who, in facing life, has always shown deep enthusiasm and willingness to grasp its positive aspects even in moments in which one is forced to face the obstacles.
Dr. Comune died last Monday, March 29, at the San Giovanni Bosco hospital in Turin, where he was hospitalized following a serious illness. The news of his death aroused deep emotion in the city where he was esteemed and appreciated as a man and as a doctor. –
