Greeting of Olgiate Olona mayor

 

On behalf of the people and the Municipality of Olgiate Olona I greet all of you who are reaching this website dedicated to the plane crash of June 26, 1959, the fifth worst disaster in civil Aviation in Italy.

Thanks to the enthusiastic commitment of its creators and supported by the patronage of the Municipality of Olgiate Olona, this website testifies all the knowledge of June 26, 1959 and outlines the initiatives and events - whose value and meaning were rewarded by the President of the Italian Republic in 2011 – animated worldwide by memory and solidarity which make the seventy lives immortal, those whose mortal body fell fatefully to the ground in Olgiate Olona and who are always alive in the hearts of their loved ones.

More and better than other signs this website attests that in Olgiate Olona the painful memory of the June 26, 1959 is capable of generating love for life: in the eyewitnesses of the plane crash as well as in the young students taking part in the educational project, in the relatives of the seventy immortal lives and in those who are honoring this page of history.

Seventy immortal lives silently accompany our journey not only in front of the memorial monument, at the ceremony of June 26 and in other occasions, but everyday thanks to the contents of this website.

 

Dr. Giovanni Montano
Olgiate Olona mayor
