You chose: san francesco

  • Questa è la settimana di San Francesco. Dopo vent’anni la Campania sarà ad Assisi il 3-4 ottobre, a nome delle regioni d’Italia, per riaccendere la lampada votiva che sarà alimentata dall’olio “delle vostre mani, delle vostre fatiche, delle vostre terre, da quella Terra dei Fuochi, da quelle terre che subiscono la ferita dell’uomo”. Oltre 200 sindaci arriveranno nella città umbra, circa 10 mila pellegrini da ogni parte della Campania.
  • Interview with Friar Carlo Bottero, the keeper of the ‘Canticle of Creatures’ and other precious manuscripts from the XIII and XIV centuries, as well as Papal Bulls pertaining to the Saint of Assisi, being exhibited in the United States. The Franciscan monk accompanies the exhibition comprising 19 works from the ‘Fondo Antico’ of Assisi’s public library, located in the Assisi Sacred Convent’s library. The first prestigious event is the exhibition at the United Nations headquarters (Nov 17- 28, 2014). After that, the exhibits will move to the Brooklyn Borough Hall (open to the public) and will be displayed through the Christmas period. We invite you to visit this one in a million exhibition in New York (Dec 2, 2014 – January 14, 2015)
