(ANSA) – PIACENZA, FEB 11 – An 87-year-old bookkeeper who
died of COVID in march left his large fortune to a care home in
his home town of Piacenza, the local Libertà daily reported
Thursday.
    A bachelor who spent his working life in a bank and his spare
time as a church volunteer, Carlo Cesare Badagnani was the son
of the historic sacristans of one of Piacenza’s largest Church
dioceses.
    The former bank clerk died of the coronavirus on March 26 and
left three million euros to the home for the elderly, including
cash, Treasury bonds and an apartment building containing six
flats near the church he attended.
    The head of the care home, Father Giuseppe Basini, called the
bequest “a sign of providence”.
    In Libertà, those who knew him remembered Badagnani as a “mild,
decent, God-fearing, and very devout man” and described his
donation as “an act of magnificent altruism”. (ANSA).
