Death Purgatori, director of La7 Salerno: “I lose a true friend, a companion in adventures”

“Tonight, on your Wednesday, the last episode of Atlantis will be broadcast on the massacres of the mafia done together”

“Andrea Purgatori has gone away. I lose a true friend, a companion in adventures, of so much life, of jobs done together with fun and passion. I can’t believe it. To his loved ones, his beloved children and his family, all the love and closeness in the world”. The director of La7 writes it on Twitter Andrew Salerno who tonight together with Enrico Mentana will remember the journalist who died today in Rome at the age of 70 in the 8pm edition of TgLa7.

“All La7tv gathers around them and those who loved them. We lose – continues Salerno – an author, a true journalist, with worn out heels and soles, who leaves us so much and has taught us so much, to me first. A legacy that will not go to waste, that we will try to apply to what we will do, every day from now on. This evening, on its Wednesday, the last episode of Atlantis will be broadcast on the mafia massacres made together and broadcast in May to close out the season.”

“An episode – recalls Salerno – on which Andrea had worked with all his strength and tenacity in conditions that were already not easy. It was a rerun that we had planned together to commemorate the attack on Via D’Amelio. He wanted it like this and it will be like this. And with Corrado Guzzanti, in the last month, we had joked about an idea for the coming July 25th… and as he would have said: oh let’s not waste the opportunity. We certainly won’t waste it Andrea. Thank you friend, thank you for everything and always. And damn it, nothing is right. Bye,” concludes Salerno.
