A fundraiser to help Davide and Emanuela, a young couple with two children, who saw their home severely damaged in the Torre Angela explosion. It was launched by a group of friends who, through the GoFoundme.com platform, have set the goal of putting together 100 thousand euros because “everyone with a small gesture can really contribute significantly to the reconstruction of the family’s love nest”.
The initiative was launched in the late afternoon yesterday, a few hours after the explosion of the top floor of their building in via Atteone. The “bang” and the fire destroyed all the apartments in the building putting 12 people, helped by the Capitol, in the middle of a street. In the blast, the landlord of the apartment was taken to hospital with burns on 70% of his body.
The 57-year-old man is hospitalized at the Great Burns Center of the Sant’Eugenio Hospital. Two other people were in need of medical attention, a couple injured by the explosion of the apartment. The devastating images told the power of the explosion better than words.
“I lit a cigarette, then it all exploded.” The morning of fear in the gutted building
The explosion made not only the apartment of the 57-year-old tenant on the top floor unusable, but also the others with the firefighters and carabinieri of Tor Bella Monaca – who are investigating – who sealed the apartments not even allowing to take some effects personal, as per practice. The friends of Davide and Emanuela, having heard the news, thus started the solidarity initiative.
“Davide and Emanuela have two 9-month and 6-year-old girls respectively, in 2019 they decided to get married on April 25, 2020, crowning their love, but as we all know unfortunately due to this cursed Covid 19 virus, which has also affected everything the world, they had to postpone their event to September 18, 2021. Yesterday, the day of the explosion, it was September 14, 2021, yes only 4 days before the wedding “, the couple’s friends write:” But we want the glass see half full and not half empty, or the best news is that everyone is safe and sound including the little dog. It could really become not just news but a tragedy. ” For now 3600 euros have been collected, the goal is to reach 100 thousand euros.
