Music by Eugenio Martani, Clarinettist; Corrado Medioli, Accordionist.
The event promoted this year by the cultural association “Gruppo Amici di Giovannino Guareschi” takes its cue from the title of this year’s Meeting “A Passion for the Person” and features the participation of five priests, each one with a particular experience, who will tell what is the Christ they encounter every day in their mission. The speeches will follow the Via Emilia, the subject of the “Route 77” exhibition, which returns to Rimini after four years, accompanied by the Dei “Superleggera” bicycle identical to the one used by Giovannino Guareschi on his cycling tour along the consular road.
