On the occasion of the centennial of the Armenian Genocide, the Armenian Community Council of Rome had addressed a letter to all major regional councils of Italy, with a request for adopting resolutions on the Armenian Genocide.
The Tuscany region adopted a resolution at Wednesday’s regional parliament session, where it expressed support to the Armenian people, Horizon Weekly reports.
The resolution states that it shall be sent to the Secretariat of the Armenian Community Council of Rome, so it may be transferred to the Armenian Genocide Museum-Institute in Armenia’s capital city of Yerevan.
Tuscany is a region in central Italy with an area of about 23,000 square kilometres (8,900 square miles) and a population of about 3.8 million inhabitants. The regional capital is Florence (Firenze).
