Friends of Cuba in Italy pay tribute to Gianni Miná (+Photos)

Friends of Cuba in Italy pay tribute to Gianni Miná (+Photos)

Rome, Mar 30 (Prensa Latina) The Italy-Cuba Friendship Association (ANAIC) paid a heartfelt tribute to recently deceased prominent journalist Gianni Miná, who was the honorary president of this solidarity organization for many years, a spokesman said Thursday.

Marco Papacci told Prensa Latina that numerous ANAIC representatives went to the Campidoglio public square in Rome on Wednesday to pay last respect to the man he described as “the greatest Italian journalist” and “a great friend of Cuba and its Revolution.”

In the book of condolences, the Association expressed “infinite gratitude for everything,” and for his unconditional fight against injustice in support of the Cuban people.

After his death was announced, Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel expressed his condolences on behalf of his country, from which Miná once said, “it is an example for the world; it represents for me the realization of utopia.”

His three interviews with Cuban President Fidel Castro were an example of his responsible journalism, his ability to challenge the dogmas imposed on that country by the Western press and defend the humanist work of the revolutionary process in that nation. In 2018, the Association of Cuban Journalists (UPEC) awarded him with the Felix Elmuza Distinction, its highest award, as a tribute to an “ethical, courageous, and daring man who wrote an immeasurable work.”
