After being informed that Madonna has decided to make a donation to the victims of earthquake that has devastated the Italian region of Abruzzo Fernando Caparso, the mayor of Pacentro who the other day solicited a helping hand from the Queen of Pop, has released a statement to Adnkronos praising Madonna’s gesture.
“I’m very happy, Madonna made a great gesture and gave out a great example. I had no doubt about Madonna’s intelligence and sensitivity. You have to be real special to stay on top in show business for more than twenty years” Caparso said.
He added “The person in charge of Madonna’s tours in Italy contacted me this morning and asked me to call her manager in Los Angeles who wants to talk to me. They gave me his number and I will call him tonight“.
People magazine has previously reported Madonna is willing to donate about $500.000 to the Italian region, now devastated by the earthquake, from which his grandfathers Michelina Di Iulio and Gaetano Ciccone left to find fortune in America in the early 20’s.
Caparso added that he hopes this gesture will be an example to follow by other major stars who love Italy.
