Forza Italia councillor tables a motion to moderate the grave of gay rights campaigner


Andrea Ballabio, who is part of the centre-right Forza Italia party, is protesting against the grave of Carlo Annoni, a married gay campaigner who died this spring aged 61. His husband Carlo Spranger decorated the grave with the couple’s favorite colors – blue and yellow – and common pictures. Some politicians spoke against it and it led to the idea that the way all graves should look like is required to be under the state control in general. Declaring that the grave is “too showy and colorful”. Andrea Ballabio said the design was “almost an insult to the other deceased and their loved ones.” The local LGBT rights organization, named Arcigay Varese, has called on Forza Italia to withdraw the motion asking them to let people mourn for their loved ones and commemorate them the way they want to – it is the least thing which can be done for grieving people.
