In Cumiana’s imagination he was ‘the communist’, due to his political faith. But he knew how to go beyond ideological barriers and listened to the weakest people and to the needs of the country. Cesare Bianco82 years old, passed away in the night at the Pinerolo hospital.
He was mayor in 1978 and 1979, then he held the position of city councilor for years and was deputy mayor alongside the current mayor Roberto Costelli, from 2001 to 2011: “In those years our list was a group of friends who spent time together, with their families, even outside the political and administrative commitment – he remembers Costelli -. Bianco was a very collaborative person, who paid a lot of attention to the weakest and loved being with people ”. His main field was public works and he also took care of the smallest problems: he committed himself to the restoration of the theater, of numerous votive pillars … But above all he was ready to get busy himself, painting benches or cutting the grass .
For years secretary of the local Communist Party and then of the Communist Refoundation, he was seen as “a ‘former comrade’ and is the most historic figure of the Cumianese left, but he was much more flexible than imagined, because he took care to do useful things for the country beyond ideological fences ”he underlines Paolo Foiettasecretary of the circle of the Democratic Party, who is a free guest in a place owned by Bianco.
In their last meeting this summer, Foietta made him a promise: “I told him we would do the Unity Day again and he would be the guest of honor.” Unfortunately Bianco passed away before, leaving a huge void in those who knew him. The greetings and testimonies of those who shared a piece of political journey with him in the Municipality follow one another on the Internet: “It is nice to see how even those who are no longer involved in the administrative field remember the figure of him today. Cumiana has lost an important person ”concludes Costelli..
The funeral will be held on Tuesday at 2.30 pm in the parish. While the rosary will be the night before, at 20.30.CopyAMP code
