From today the meeting room of the PD Sicily headquarters is entitled to Angela Bottariincomparable Sicilian, former parliamentarian, regional secretary, who passed away last November.

The naming ceremony – decided on the initiative of the regional secretary Anthony Barbagallo – took place this afternoon in Palermo in the presence of Angela Bottari's husband, Gioacchino Silvestrothe children and grandchildren of the former parliamentarian Filippo Panarelloof the president of the regional Anti-Mafia commission, Antonello Cracolici and the head of the PNRR department Cleo Li Calziwhich Angela Bottari had taken under her “protecting wing”.

“I remember Angela's fundamental contribution and activism – said Barbagallo – for women's rights and the battles supported, on the front line with the Sicilian PD, to support the approval of the law on double gender preference also in Sicily, the only region still without this measure. An example, always and forever. Which inspires all of us who, from this moment on, every time we cross the threshold of this room we will feel even more responsible to carry on our battles in support of women, of the weakest and most discriminated against, with the passion that Angela has shown us transmitted.”
