The all-white tram dedicated to Carla Fracci is a reality. “Just finished decorating”, is the message that appeared yesterday next to the photos on the Facebook page “The trams of Milan”, with the candid vehicle in storage. At the top and along the side we read “Milan for Carla Fracci”, next to a red stripe that looks like a silk ribbon. The tram represents the gratitude of the Milanese to the étoile who passed away on May 27: its passage will be a perennial greeting, every time it will pass in front of the Teatro alla Scala, and will also remember the greeting that the father of the ballerina, Luigi Fracci, tram driver, he reserved for his daughter by ringing.
The mayor Giuseppe Sala wanted the creation of this special vehicle: “I asked Atm to dedicate you a tram of line 1 – he wrote on his social pages last week, addressing the étoile – 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 in the world. Thank you on behalf of all the Milanese and all the Milanese “.
