The 40-year-old Pakistani man, resident in the city, who on Sunday afternoon at the wheel of his Fiat Panda accidentally collided with the motorbike on which the 44-year-old Roberta Filippetti from Potenza was travelling, is being investigated on charges of vehicular homicide, according to the investigations of the Carabinieri of Civitanova. The tragic accident occurred along the provincial road, near the Castelletta district in Potenza Picena, and unfortunately it was fatal for the woman, well known in the town for her work as a pharmacist and for her long commitment to the social world. Meanwhile, this morning at the Civitanova morgue an autopsy will be carried out on the body, entrusted to the medical examiner Roberto Scendoni and the toxicologist Rino Froldi, ordered by the deputy prosecutor Enrico Barbieri. But the entire community of Potenza Picena is still in shock over the death of the 44-year-old, who had been serving in the municipal pharmacy in Piazza Matteotti for over ten years, as well as a volunteer for Emergency Macerata. For everyone, she was the pharmacist with the kind smile. “A highly trained professional – Mario Properzi, sole director of the Azienda Servizi Potenza Picena, remembers her -. As a student she had done an important Erasmus in Germany, home of chemistry and pharmacology. And she was hired by us in 2014 and from there she had become a point of reference, so much so that in fact she held the role of deputy director of the branch in Potenza Picena. However, in addition to her beautiful smile, she was available to everyone and many customers sought her out every day. Discretion, seriousness and professionalism, This is how we remember her. A very serious human loss and not only.”
Among those who express condolences is Roberto Fontenla, coordinator of Emergency Macerata. “Roberta was a magnificent, kind and welcoming person – says Fontenla -. And every time we talked about organizing an initiative she was the first to come forward, because she was always at the forefront when it came to raising funds for humanitarian missions or organizing events to spread the culture of peace. He had been part of this group for over 15 years and we were shocked. For this reason, among us members of Emergency we are collecting money which we will then donate to the association, in his memory.” The woman was torn away from the affection of her daughter, her husband Jemmy Parigi, her sister Maria Laura (who lives in London), her mother Anna and her father Franco (who has a goldsmith’s workshop in the city).
