Choosing to erect the proper memorial isn't an easy job, but it shouldn't be this hard either.
May 4 represented the 65th anniversary of the Superga air disaster, which killed 18 players as well as numerous coaches and officials from Torino F.C. Naturally government officials are distancing themselves from the project due to public outrage, which according to "la Reppublica Torino" is growing in size.
The following is translated from their report.
There is a flurry of indignant protests and even an internet petition launched against the controversial monument dedicated to Torino F.C., installed in Borgaro on Sunday, May 4, on a roundabout near Piazza Grande Toro. The initiative, endorsed by the City of Torino has been called "ugly, disrespectful and especially gruesome."
Seriously, who thought this was a good idea?
