Everybody was invited, from the latest born to the 90-year-old, to come to piazza Giovanni XXIII at 12 o'clock, January 1st 2000, 3000 citizens around mayor Angelo Di Francescantonio for a group picture. If necessary smaller groups will be taken then reassembled in a giant puzzle. Don't worry if you won't look good after a whole night's dancing and drinking, what is important is to be there.

Monsignor Molinari's message for the New Millennium / Il vescovo auspica un Millennio senza ingiustizie - by Federica Farda
"I wish to all the diocesis peace, brotherhood, hope and serenity, especially that inner serenity coming when you feel good with your coscience. This year, which I consider the beginning of the Third Millennium, I would like to renew my exhortation to charity, as Christ taught us. Albert Camus used to say "there may be shame in being happy alone". Joy and solidarity must be shared, we cannot be happy if there are unemployed and homeless people. We must pray for a better democracy, strive so that private property will not mean poverty for many, exploitation and speculations. We must ask and exact a shadowless democracy.

The tree was in the centre of the wood, a natural reserve which is one of the wonders of Abruzzo.
