Nominations for
Giuseppe Sala
Mayor of Milan (Italy)

Nominated by C. P., Milan:
Considering that Milan is a metropolis, Mr. Sala has done his best to be "near" to all people by sending daily video messages on Facebook, while continuing using the daily newsletter providing all info about initiatives for lonely, as well as elderly as well poor people. He and his staff immediately took care of immigrants and homeless. It was not possible to stop the virus, but at least we had the strong impression that all that could be done, was done. Improvements are always at hand, but our mayor did a good and honest job.

Casa Jannacci, in Viale Ortles, is probably the biggest "house" for homeless and immigrants in Milan. During the pandemia the Council provided different places to stay in order to decrease the number of people living together and as a result only one person (who suffered also of other deseases) died out of almost 500 people. All were given medical assistance and food.

E' un ottimo sindaco che sta facendo di Milano una città verde. A Milano il Coronavirus è stato terribile. Il sindaco Sala e le organizzazioni di volontariato hanno dato un grande aiuto e conforto ai più poveri.

Un sindaco vicino agli ultimi. Attento alla sostenibilità. Ha fatto di Milano una città triste una città effervescente e vivace. Cercando di portare anche in periferia questo cambiamento. Con EXPO 2015 ha vinto un grandissima sfida migliorando inoltre tutte le parti comuni di Milano. Da quel momento Milano è esplosa come attendesse il via in un turbine di iniziative e attraendo in città i grandi che hanno sostenuto il cambiamento sostenibile. Ha varato un grande piano per far diventare gli ex scali ferroviari in un grande anello di verde pubblico.
Si occupa pur in una città così grande di tutti. È il migliore sindaco che Milano ha avuto ad oggi a mia memoria. Viva Beppe!!
