WWII in Italy: Old Allied Sign in Puglia

World War II was not so long ago.

On the side of this old Fascist building in Foggia they still have painted these words from 1944 (the building had been made into the local Allied headquarters).


  1. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year JP ! Congratulations on your work. How's our mutual friend Bishop Paul Serba doing? Give him my best.

  2. Hello. I happened upon your blog this morning. Interesting, nicely done.

    I need a bit of advice. I'll be traveling (actually more like wandering) in Italy in 2010 and would like to know if there are any traditional (Latin liturgy) monasteries where I might spend some good retreat time. In recent years I've stayed at Benedictine abbeys in France -- Fontgombault, near Poitiers, and Ste-Madeliene, near Avignon. I'm American and live in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Pax Tecum,
