Minister Tajani pays tribute to the memory of Giovanni Falcone and all the victims of the Capaci mafia massacre

The Italian Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Antonio Tajani, paid tribute to the memory of Giovanni Falcone and all the victims of the Capaci mafia massacre on the occasion of the 32nd anniversary of the tragic day of 23 May 1992.

In recalling their courage and sacrifice, the Deputy Prime Minister expressed his congratulations to Prof. Maria Falcone, the magistrate’s sister, on the imminent inauguration of Museo del Presente Giovanni Falcone e Paolo Borsellino in Palermo, which “is a valuable tool for keeping our collective memory alive and fostering a dialogue of ideas on the fight against the Mafia.”

In addition, Tajani underlined the Italian government’s contribution to the approval of UN General Assembly Resolution 78/267 on 21 March, which establishes 15 November as the International Day for the Prevention of and Fight against All Forms of Transnational Organised Crime. The Deputy Prime Minister stated that “the explicit reference to Giovanni Falcone’s name in the text of the Resolution is further testimony to the international recognition and enduring impact of the magistrate in the lives of us all.”
