Former Christian Democrat senator Angelo Donato dies. She would have turned ninety on April 12th. Born in Chiaravalle Centrale, in the province of Catanzaro, was, in the second half of the last century, one of the leading figures of the Crusader shield in Calabria. Elected as municipal councilor of Chiaravalle Centrale, he was mayor of the town from 1965 to 1970. Then regional councilor and councilor in Calabria. He held the position of mayor of Catanzaro from 1985 to 1987 before becoming senator for two legislatures from 1987 to 1994.
«Chiaravalle Centrale, on this day of mourning – states the mayor of the town Domenico Donato, nephew of the deceased politician – gathers around the memory of a man who profoundly marked not only the political and cultural history of our city but also of Catanzaro and all of Calabria: Angelo Donato. Today he left us, a void that will be difficult to fill. His political career, dotted with important successes and prestigious roles, is inextricably intertwined with my personal life. Angelo, in addition to being a prominent figure in Italian politics, was my uncle.”
«As difficult as it is to separate the institutional role from family affection – concludes the mayor – in this moment of pain, I prefer to remember him simply as Uncle Angelo, the man who, with his example, marked my life and that of many others”.
