Sliema’s local council has unanimously agreed to rename a street in honor of the late Robert Arrigo, former Deputy Leader of the Nationalist Party (PN) and the inaugural mayor of the locality.
The decision pays tribute to Arrigo’s significant contributions as the first Mayor of Sliema and acknowledges his deep connection to the area. Mayor John Pillow expressed the council’s pride in commemorating Arrigo, emphasizing the great honor of having a street in his name where he lived and served.
The renaming will affect Tigne’ Street between Ċensu Scerri and Sant’Antnin. The application for the change was successfully approved by the government’s Street Naming Committee.
Arrigo, who served as PN Deputy Leader for nearly five years, passed away in 2022 at the age of 67 after battling cancer. The renaming stands as a lasting tribute to Arrigo’s legacy and his dedicated service to the community.
