Volonica. He passed away on Monday evening after a disease that lasted several years Sergio Galati79, one of the pioneers of roller hockey in Follonica and manager for years of the tobacco maker’s shop on Matteotti Street, is still open and is now followed by his niece Silvia.
Galati was one of the first historical champions of the Gulf Wheels world and, like all his peers, he started taking his first steps on the outdoor track in Florida formerly in the middle, then became part of the great first team that brought the blues around Italy. If you live in the city and go out to play the approach on sleighs and that was inevitable, for him as for all this generation of Fulunian citizens. From 1963 to 1974, Sergio was one of the pillars of the Maremma team along with other historical heroes who marked those wonderful years: in that era together with Galati, they stomped on the tracks of Italy with the Volonica shirt, players who entered the history of the Gulf states as Armenia , Aloisi, Marchesini, Gableeri, Trevison and a few years later, also Aneda, Salvadore, Raul Micheli, Palmieri, Balati, Guetta, Boscaglia, Migliorini, or rather substitutes for this formation that won a few years later in 1977, the first Italian Cup in the history of City hockey.
Galati’s exploits have sparked at least two generations of Follonian citizens, helping to build the story that has made Follonica a “hockey town” in the past 20 years.
The mining expert, having finished his sporting adventure on skates, Sergio completely devoted himself to the family business by running the tobacco seller and bookstores that have always been named after his family. The first to start the resale was his father Sebastiano, Director of Finance; “Let’s go to the Marshals contract” was the typical phrase for anyone who needed a revenue stamp, a pack of cigarettes, or any kind of monopoly. Sergio has been behind the counter for decades and continues to serve clients into 2017, even after reaching retirement. He has always lived next to his brother Josephwho passed away in July, drenched in the affection of his granddaughters Silvia And the michelafrom the sister-in-law hiss and other grandchildren Bruno, Fabiano, Lorenzo, Luca And the Sabrina.
The religious funeral service will take place on Wednesday morning at 10:30 am in the Basilica of San Leopoldo before arriving at the Sterpeto cemetery for the cremation.
