Italy: Rome to name metro station after ‘black partisan’

Rome votes to name future Amba Aradam metro stop after Giorgio Marincola.

Rome city council has backed a motion to name a future Metro C station after the so-called partigiano nero or ‘black partisan’ Giorgio Marincola, instead of the planned name of Amba Aradam – Ipponio.

“Rome is proudly anti-fascist,” said mayor Virginia Raggi who declared that Marincola “sacrificed his life for the good of our country, his example keeps alive the memory of those who died for the liberation of Italy.”

Naming the station after Marincola is “a precise and important signal, especially in this historical period,” said Raggi, adding: “Rome does not forget.”
