PRIME MINISTER GIUSEPPE CONTE VISITS RITTMEYER
INSTITUTE FOR THE BLIND AND VISUALLY IMPAIRED
Yesterday, September 13th 2018, was a historic day for the Regional Institute Rittmeyer for the Blind and Visually Impaired. No prime minister has ever set foot in the last 100 years of history. Obviously, the visit is not tied to a political hue, but to the prestige of an institution that represents in its kind an excellence recognized at European level.
Many thanks to Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte and thanks to the Under Secretary (Deputy Minister) for Disability and Family Affairs Vincenzo Zoccano who made this meeting possible with the help of the National board. In fact, in addition to the aforementioned, the National President of the FISH and the National Vice President of the FAND attended the event, in addition to the presidents of all the local associations that deal with disability affairs.
For one day, the Institute was the heart of the huge universe of disability affairs, from which a strong message of sharing and unity will be surely relayed. It will allow the Ministry to operate concretely and on behalf of over 6 million citizens who claim a role in the society as citizens among citizens with rights and duties.
Many thanks also to the Directors of the Institution Ralph Rocktaeschel, Andrea Sossi and Pierpaolo Lenaz for their presence, as well as the General Manager Dr. Elena Weber and the entire staff present.
