On August 25, 1938, our City suffered the devastation caused by the bombing that we remember today. In this sense, we render our recognition to the victims, to all of them, direct and indirect, of that cruel event.
And in an exercise of democratic responsibility, over and above ideological differences, we unite to dignify his memory, rejecting violence and war, wherever it comes from.
We remember our past to learn from mistakes, with the firm will that they never be repeated and the unanimous desire for a peaceful and respectful coexistence.
For all those who died in that senseless act, for their families and for all those who were forever marked by the horror of a war that should never have been, we ask you to share with us this minute of silence.
Rest in peace.
