An all-white trolley from the Carrelli series but with the name and surname of Carla Fracci written in italics (red) on the side. This is what Atm has achieved to pay homage to the Supernova of dance who disappeared at the age of 84. The idea had been put forward a few days ago by the mayor of Milan: Beppe Sala had asked the company that manages public transport to dedicate a tram of line 1, one of the vehicles that Luigi Fracci, Carla’s father, drove after the war and with whom he accompanied his daughter to the first audition at the Accademia della Scala. Not only that, it is said that Carla’s father, every time he went by tram in front of the theater, rang the bell of the car three times to greet his daughter.
Milan mourns the Supernova of dance
“I asked Atm to dedicate a tram of line 1 to you, – Sala wrote on his Instagram profile, posting a photo with the dancer – the one that passes in front of the Scala; it will be an all-white tram, with your name written in a discreet way . I think it is a very Milanese way of remembering you, sober and which reaffirms our values and our qualities. Values and qualities that you, the proud daughter of a tram driver, have brought to the world. Thanks on behalf of all the Milanese women and all Milanese “.
In the past few hours some photos of public transport have been leaked. The image of the tram (practically finished) was also relaunched on social media by Carlo Monguzzi, Pd city councilor and chairman of the Mobility commission. It is not excluded that soon the vehicle will start rattling on the tracks in the heart of Milan.
