Donor Stories

A moving story that shows a strong love for life

A few days before the National Day for Organs Donation and Transplant, the column Donor Stories celebrates Alessandro through his family’s words.

Our dear angel is Alessandro.

Alessandro died on 2011, only 21 years old, in a car accident.

His parents – with great generosity – decided to agree to doctors’ request of organs donation.

He still lives inside many people.

He played football for Rondinese, his city team. Often, he had fun playing with kids at the oratory. Immediately, his friends demanded the soccer field, where they played many times, to be entitled to him. The City agreed with their request and since May 2012 you can play at the “Franchi”!

At the sport center, there is also a little monument “We like to remember you running on the band”.

Rosalba, his grandmother, in occasion of his birthday – May, 16 – dedicated him a spire of Milan Cathedral: the Gabriel Archangel.
