The NCO was a member of the Surobi Task Force and arrived in Afghanistan on December 3, 2007.
Today the Multinational CIMIC Group Commander, Colonel Mattia Zuzzi, recalled the example, the courage and the value that marked the work of Giovanni during his day-to-day work on Afghan soil in the presence of family members and the Mayor of Oderzo.
