Absent Salvatore Licitra Will Be Made Honorary Citizen

Although tenor Sal­vatore Licitra was born in Switzer­land and grew up in Milan, his family is originally from Acate which is a small town in the south of Sicily. With the ill tenor still in a coma from his accident, the family has given their blessing for Mayor Giovanni Caruso to bestow him with honorary citizenship to Acate. The city council met in an emergency meeting at the castle of the Prince of Biscari to arrange the ceremony that will take place on September 5.

 "Il Consiglio comunale di Acate si riunirà domenica 5 settembre alle 19,30, al Castello dei Principi di Biscari, in seduta straordinaria, per il conferimento della cittadinanza onoraria al tenore Salvatore Licitra. L'artista si trova ricoverato da domenica scorsa in gravi condizioni all'ospedale «Garibaldi» di Catania, dopo il drammatico incidente in scooter di sabato scorso a Donnalucata, frazione di Scicli. Ma in queste ore i familiari, sia pure provati, hanno dato il proprio assenso al sindaco Giovanni Caruso, allo svolgimento della cerimonia." [Source]
