As of today, the memory of the victims of the Heysel Tragedy is honoured by the renaming of a piazza situated in the Borgo Dora district of the city.
The ‘Piazzetta vittime dello stadio Heysel’ was unveiled this morning at an event attended by Gianluca Pessotto, who had this to say about the symbolic gesture:
“It is a pleasure to be here for the renaming of this piazza in memory of our fans, who lost their lives for a football match. That is the most difficult thing to comprehend. It is important that people – even non-supporters – will now stop by here and wonder what happened on 29 May 1985.
