Velletri – Giuseppe Savelloni has left us: he was 85 years old. Peppe, who loved athletics, “jumped high”

The community of Velletri is mourning the passing of Giuseppe Savelloni, better known as Peppe, who passed away yesterday, Tuesday 11 June, at the INI in Grottaferrata. Peppe, who was 85 years old and would have turned 86 this summer, left us after fighting an illness that unfortunately left him no escape. Not even to him, so fond of athletics, who knew how to teach jumping over obstacles. And it is precisely because of that profound love for one of the noblest of sports that makes us think that he jumped high, so high as to reach Heaven.

Savelloni’s funeral will be celebrated on Thursday 13 June at 3.30 pm, at the church of San Giovanni Battista, in via Lando Conti (Velletri). It will be a moment of great emotion for all those who knew and loved him and who will embrace his family with affection, starting with his daughter Elena and brother Giovanni.

Giuseppe Savelloni, born in Ferentino in 1938, dedicated his life to sport and community service. Since he was a boy, he has been passionate about various sports, including basketball, football and athletics. After graduating from high school, he served as a non-commissioned officer in the Italian Army and began his working career at the Velletri Court.

In 1964, he moved to Turin, where he worked first in a public body and then in a small private company. At the age of 29, he began a long and prestigious career at the National Agricultural Bank, where he held various professional roles for almost 30 years.

During his stay in Turin, Savelloni held numerous social roles, including Vice President of the neighborhood where he lived, company union representative and councilor of the Province of Turin in the CGIL. He continued to play football and athletics, participating in road and track races.

In 1981, he moved to Velletri, where he enthusiastically joined various city athletics clubs, where he always left his mark, in addition to his proverbial smiles and that sense of serenity that more than many he knew how to instill, until closing with experience at Nissolino Atletica Velletri.

Even after leaving the presidency, Peppe continued to contribute as a manager, always with the same spirit of love for sport.

This is how Peppe described himself on the Nissolino Atletica Velletri website: “I am still a manager of Atletica Velletri and I continue to collaborate. The love for sport in general and for athletics in particular are part of who I am: they have accompanied me for a whole life and I hope to be able to continue for a long time to come.”

With his passing, Velletri loses a figure of great importance, a man who dedicated his life to the service of others and to the development of sport, but who also loved culture, as demonstrated by the books he wrote.

The whole community rallies around Peppe’s family in this moment of pain, remembering with affection and gratitude his example of dedication and passion, which will not be forgotten.
