Day of the Righteous celebrates Ambassador Barbarani



Day of the Righteous celebrates Ambassador Barbarani

This year European Day of the Righteous, honouring all those who have fought against genocide and in the defence of human dignity, is a bit more special, for the first time celebrating an ambassador: Emilio Barbarani, who was head of our diplomatic mission in Chile in the 1970s. The students of the “Rummo” Scientific High School have dedicated a tree to the ambassador in the courtyard of their school in observance of this yearly recurrence. “In the mid-1970s”, the students write, “after the coup by Augusto Pinochet, the Embassy of Italy in Santiago del Chile became a refuge for hundreds of opposition members who risked death. Then-Consul Barbarano arranged for the escape of approximately 750 members of the political left, supporters of Allende, men, women and children fleeing terror”. Read more, in Italian.
