77th Anniversary of the massacre of the Benedicta
The anniversary of the massacre will be celebrated again this year, despite the impossibility of accessing the places in which it took place. Through the Facebook page of the Association Memoria della Benedicta, we would like to recall the ever-present teaching that comes from the sacrifice of many young people who were killed and deported. The celebration can be followed entirely on the Facebook page (www.facebook.com/a.m.benedicta), and viewers can interact live with the "reactions" offered by Facebook, with personal comments and, if the conditions are met, with the same President Borioli.
