On the 27th January, the day of remembrance, Carlo Perego arrived at our school to talk about his father: Leonida Perego.
Who was Leonida Perego?
He was a man. He didn’t do anything wrong, but he refused fascist identity card.
What did we do?
After we arrived in the theatre, after the introduction of professor Consonni, Carlo started to tell his father’s story: one evening in his house in Seregno the military arrested Leonida Perego with a false accuse. Since he was of working age, he was sent to a labor camp, as a worker he had the right to send postcards and to have a salary.
After long and hard year, he succeeded in escaping. When he returned home, he looked like a hungry skeleton with socks and clothes patched up; Carlo didn’t recognized him.
What is the opinion of professor Consonni?
Students: how did everything start?
Prof. Consonni: an evening I was listening to the story of Leonida; this story shocked me, and I wanted to tell it to my students.
Students: what information he told you shocked you the most?
Prof. Consonni: when Carlo told me the story from when he was a child: he remembers when his father was arrested.
