Omari’s friends and colleagues passed in front of a crowd of fans that half filled the Piazza de la Repubblica, where they were greeted with loud applause without distinction of football faith or team affiliation.. Football fans with scarves or a Lazio flag applauding Totti and De Rossi as they leave the square followed by Mayor Gualtieri, Lazio fans calling him “Bruno!” As the former Roma Conte player leaves the church of Santa Maria degli Angeli. At last they approached the entrance of the chapel to see the members of the Lazio team and its management, who came out moved and slightly embarrassed by the moment, accustomed to smiling and jubilant before those who called them and forced instead, on this occasion, to confine themselves to a few silent gestures. Then Lotito, Baresi, Liverani, Tari, Mancini.
