Fumetto Card #48: LUCIA PRECENZANO and SALVATORE AVERSA

Not to forget the innocent victims of the mafia. The Fumetto Card #49 solidarity figurine is dedicated to the Chief Superintendent of the State Police, Gold Medal for Civil Valor, Salvatore Aversa and his wife Lucia Precenzano, killed by the ‘ndrangheta in Lamezia Terme in 1992.

Lucia Precenzano (born 16 June 1937) and Salvatore Aversa (born 14 June 1933) married in 1962. From their union three children were born: Walter, Paolo and Giulia.

Lucia is a teacher who transmits passion, commitment, but also great respect and kindness to her students. Salvatore works as a policeman in the police station and immediately stands out for his strong commitment to defending the values ​​of legality and against malfeasance, achieving notable investigative successes in the fight against organized crime in the Piana.

In the early 1990s he initiated investigations into criminal activities within the Lamezia city council. He is aware of the risks he runs, but he doesn’t take a step back in the battle against organized crime. On January 4, 1992, a day of celebration preceding the Epiphany, Salvatore and Lucia stopped by to greet some friends and then stopped in the center to buy the last gifts in some shops in the center of Lamezia; when they walk to the car to go home. Two men, who had probably been following them for a few hours, suddenly opened fire, shooting first at the police non-officer and then at Lucia.

A massacre carried out by professional killers, which leaves no witnesses, even though it is almost seven in the evening, on a day of celebration and that is one of the most central and busiest streets in the city. When the police arrive on site they find themselves faced with a chilling scene. Salvatore dies immediately, his wife a few minutes after arriving at the hospital. Their lives were thus interrupted, at the ages of 59 and 55, leaving their beloved children in pain and despair.

Lucia and Salvatore together represent the idea of ​​all-round and daily commitment both in the “normal” situation of managing the family and work within the school, and in the “extraordinary” situation of fighting the mafia in the field.

We thank the Aversa family for their collaboration
