Luca Valdiserri’s letter
Luca Valdiserri, Francesco’s father, wanted to launch a appeal from the pages of the ‘Corriere della Sera’ after the accident. In its letter, in one passage, we read: “Francesco defended his ideas with total conviction, with the tenacity that is only of the boys. To you, friends of Fra, I only say two things: never lose this strength and, if you drink one glass too much, don’t drive. It cannot save you 100%, we have learned that in the cruellest way. If something terrible should happen, however, you will not live the rest of your life with remorse that it was you who caused it ”.
And then: “If even one of the kids who read us doesn’t drive after drinking, then our pain will be a little less useless. If those in charge will implement the possible measures to avoid other tragedies like his, then Fra will not die in vain ”.
