Largo Christian Bartoli

Sign, largo Christian Bartoli, Antignano, LivornoOn January 19, 1998, 17-years-old Christian Bartoli died for a ruptured aneurysm after two days of intensive care. His parents chose to donate his organs, changing forever the lives of those who received them. In 1999 a small square near the “Tre Ponti” (Three Bridges) beach was named after him.

Nice way to do positive things, but not always so easy to think out when you as a parent is in a situation like that.

I never thought of having public recognition of those who give life after death. Maybe it is a good idea and would encourage others.

The sign is unusual, simple, and nice.
Rest in peace, Christian Bartoli.

At a painful time like that, it must have been very hard for the parents to concentrate on the needs of others. Nice way to recognize and remember the young man.
