Genoa and the whole nation mourn the victims of the collapse of the Morandi bridge in Genoa, including the painful loss of the two Albanian workers.
The death toll is not yet definitive (39 confirmed victims).
Today at the Prefecture of Genoa, Prime Minister Conte, Deputy Prime Minister Di Maio and Minister Toninelli found themselves together with the Genoese and Ligurian authorities. Also present was the Honorary Consul of Albania Giuseppe Maria Durazzo.
"We are deeply saddened by the tragedy that struck Genoa for the dozens of victims, including two young Albanians living in the city: Marius Djerri of 1996 and Admir Bokrina of 1986.
The large Albanian community is also present in this painful situation.
The Ambassador of Albania in Italy, if Anila Bitri Lani, has followed the facts with the utmost attention, given the fear that Albanian citizens could also be among the victims.
With the coordination of the Embassy, I kept in touch with the local authorities, the mayor and the prefecture, just a few minutes after the tragedy.
The official confirmation of the names of the Albanian victims was given by the Prefecture only in the last hours.
I presented the Condolences to the Mayor of Genoa, Marco Bucci, who in turn presented them to Albania.
The families of the victims, already informed, are closed in their grief. "
In the afternoon the Consul Durazzo visited the families of Marjus Djerri. "Over fifty people gathered around the family of Marjus Djerri this afternoon - says the honorary Consul of Albania Giuseppe Durazzo - the civil protection provided them with water bottles, sandwiches and chairs, so that they could participate in the great Albanian city mourning in the square of the morgue of the San Martino hospital in Genoa, in an incessant and heartfelt embrace to parents, grandfather, aunts and other relatives. A final visit to the young victim concluded the painful afternoon before the body was transported to the Staglieno cemetery.
It was an exemplary greeting in its strength and composure.
The family of Admir Bokrina will arrive in Genoa tonight ”.
