Renato D'Alessandro wants a parish priest for Ari, where for seven years now the church has been empty. The previous priest fled after a shameful story was discovered, and the one before him said he had invented a miraculous oil. Lanciano diocesis asked them to be patient, but now the Arese have had enough. They will go to Rome by bus if necessary this 5 September. The mayor and council are also ready to chain themselves on top of the church bell-tower.

Silone's death - Let the left remember the "unarmed prophet" / La morte di Silone - La sinistra si ricordi del "profeta disarmato" - by Gianni Melilla *
On 22 August 1978 Ignazio Silone died in Geneva. Though always inspired from politics, he never belonged to a party. His characters are expatriates, clandestines, victims of dictators. He refused violence for a libertarian socialism. Fascism persecuted him, killed his brother, expelled him from his native Pescina. All the Italian left owes something to Silone. But for us Abruzzese Silone is much more, he tells about the poetry of our landscape: the stone houses, villages, mountains.
*DS Regional Secretary and President of Regione Abruzzo Comitato Silone
