16th of October

We start our tour taking a train to the North, towards the Alps, to screen the film at the Religion Today Film Festival, the most important interreligious film festival in Italy. This year's theme is "Change".

There will be two stops: first in Bolzano, then in Trento.

Luigi De Salvia, Secretary General of Religions for Peace Italy, is travelling with us.

 

 Early in the afternoon we arrive in Bolzano …

 

 

Francesco Comina, of Bolzano’s Peace Center (Centro per la Pace di Bolzano) welcomes us.

He has organized the event in collaboration with Religion Today and has written a very moving article about the film for the national Catholic newspaper L'Avvenire (he writes beautifully, thank you Francesco!).

 

 

 

He immediately takes us to the Town Hall where the mayor Luigi Spagnoli warmly greets Fr Swami and Selmy.

 

In the evening, the documentary is screened at the "Free University of Bozen -Bolzano". Bishop Ivo Muser attends the show.
