The funeral of Daniel Guerini
“When in the evening he falls asleep er monno, Rome cradled him in his arms in sleep … Hello Daniel”, reads the giant banner of the Curva Nord for Daniel, the Lazio Primavera player who died last March 24 in a road accident in Rome, on the Palmiro Togliatti at just 19 years old. Outside the church of San Giovanni Bosco, where the funeral was held, this banner found its place to mark the feeling of gratitude and despair for the tragedy that overwhelmed his family. And that the company perceived as its own.
Lazio’s greeting to Guero
“Hi Guero”, is also what was fixed on the white coffin that enters the crowd present in what used to be the square, the church of the neighborhood where this boy in love with football grew up and who had also dressed Torino, before returning to Roma.
Three thousand white and blue balloons accompanied the entrance to the coffin, painted with the social colors of his Lazio, which Daniel had loved since childhood and which he had already dreamed of when he began to get noticed and win attention, with the blue shirt under 15 and under 16.
Everyone arrived for him who had had him close and that he felt as references: in addition to family and friends, the first team of the Lazio, with the president Claudio Lotito, Tare, De Martino, Inzaghi, Peruzzi, Lulic, Cataldi, Reina, Armini, Correa, Parolo and all the Spring. And again the youth of the Roma and the president of Turin, Urbano Cairo, who thus paid homage to Guero.
The telegram from Pope Francis
For him, for his family, she also spent moving words Pope francesco who sent a telegram read during the funeral.
“Upon hearing the news of his untimely death, his holiness Pope Francis wishes to express his deepest condolences to his parents Michela and Danilo, to his brother Alessio, and to all family members, the Lazio sports club, managers and friends, ensuring that the lives of the deceased it is simply transformed and prepared for eternity.
