The “chef of the poor” Dino Impagliazzo died in Rome

by admin

Dino Impagliazzo, also known as ‘the chef of the poor’, died in Rome. He fed over 300 people every day between the railway stations of the capital together with the volunteers who had followed him for years. Personality in the Catholic and social world, he was a historical member of the Focolare Movement of Chiara Lubich and of the Community of Sant’Egidio. He was born on the island of La Maddalena 91 years ago, but he had lived in Rome for a lifetime. He returned to his island every summer to meet up with his old friends and go fishing. In 2020 Dino Impagliazzo was awarded the Honorary Honor of the Italian Republic by the Head of State Sergio Mattarella at the Quirinale. He had been awarded the honor in the group of 32 “heroes of our days” awarded for their high commitment in various fields, an example for the country. The funeral will be celebrated on Tuesday 27 July at 11:00 in the church of Santa Maria in Trastevere in Rome. He was the founder and president of the RomAmor Onlus association which primarily deals with feeding homeless and destitute people on the streets of Rome, but which also deals with the social recovery of people in difficulty. «Dino Impagliazzo, also known as ‘the chef of the poor’, left us. A ‘hero of our days’ who has dedicated his life to help the weakest and most fragile people. Rome is close to its family and loved ones “, writes Mayor Virginia Raggi on twitter.” Great sadness. He leaves us a man who has dedicated his whole life to the people in need. A man who knew how to love and help everyone . His example is and will remain a lesson for everyone. My heartfelt condolences to his family, “said the president of the Lazio Region Nicola Zingaretti in a note.
