Fiumicino, 24 February 2021 - The CEO of Rome Airports, Marco Troncone, has issued a statement following the sudden death of the Chairman, Antonio Catricalà.

"Knowing that I reflect the feelings of the entire Board of Directors and of ADR's employees, today the sudden death of the Chairman Catricalà leaves an enormous sorrow and a huge void in all of us. A fine jurist, but above all an asset to the Institutions and a true servant of the State, with extraordinary professional and human qualities. His wisdom also made him an indisputable reference point in our company. We will miss his tact, his politeness, his fine irony and availability with everyone without ever sparing himself. We were connected to him with feelings of great esteem and sincere friendship, and his valuable advice will remain indelibly in our hearts. My sincere condolences and those of ADR's Board of Directors go out to his wife, daughters and family.”
