Acceglio Foundation Award: Four Women Are Chosen
May 27, 2017
The Foundation has firmly wanted to start this year with a particular acknowledgment to people who did some special example or service to the population.
During the evening before the Narcissus Feast it is in the Parish Church that people gather around four ladies who, after the loss of their husbands, through a life of dedication, great work, sacrifice, showed determination, willpower, awareness and commitment towards the community and their family. The ladies were: Giovanna Ponza Pilotto, Maria Olivero Guerrini, Maria Acchiardi Lerda, Giovanna Maria Bernardi Baralis.
Recognize their values is a sign of great and bright incentive and an encouragement to all of us to live in a world full of challenges and problems.
The evening resulted a moving ceremony, so animated and fresh, despite the women’s age.
Our parish priest, Father Beppe Dalmasso, has welcome all with his open and dear hospitality.
Simona Colonna, the Music Master and Composer (who has composed the soundtrack music of the Documentary film dedicated to Matteo Olivero) gave a touching and impressive concert with her cello and her wonderful voice.
Moments of the women’s everyday lives had been projected and gave a tone of friendly atmosphere before the award-giving, when commemorative plaques had been delivered to the four ladies.
As a conclusion, refreshments had been provided in a sharing and relax climate with all Acceglio citizens.
