A San Giovanni scholar suggests solutions for the ancient monastery against its use for an ex-drug-addict community: let it be a museum for military chaplains / Uno studioso umbro di San Giovanni lancia l'allarme e suggerisce soluzioni per utilizzare l'antico complesso - Comunità di recupero in convento «La struttura di Capestrano diventi invece museo dei cappellani militari» - by Federica Farda
Filippo De Marchis has been searching for years to find the remains of St John from Capestrano, which disappeared from the monastery of Ilok.

He suggests different solutions to finance the upkeep of the monastery: a twinship with all places in the world connected to Saint John, a project to create a world museum for military chaplains, a twinship with Hungary, whose 1956 revolution started on 23 october, the saint's festivity, or also a congress centre.
