In Busnago, the giant bench was inaugurated in memory of Giulia Fabio, the 17-year-old girl who died of cancer last March. With this beautiful symbol, the family of the 17-year-old girl from Bosnago, who passed away last March after a long battle with the disease, decided to keep her memory alive among those who knew and loved her. It was Giulia’s parents and all her loved ones who donated a large green and purple bench, which will be permanently installed inside the Parco degli Alpini on Via Piave. The family’s goal, through this gesture of great symbolic value, is “to promote the idea of happiness by giving space to adults and children to observe life from other points of view, just like Julia, throughout her journey in the fight against the disease, always had.”
The bench will be opened on Saturday 18 November at 2.30pm in the presence of all friends who keep in their hearts the memory of a sunny, smiling and stubborn girl, who loved life more than anything else in the world. I remember that in a few days, he would live forever in one of the busiest parks in the country.
