The sharing will begin on Sunday 23 August and will end on Sunday 13 September, it will be structured in 22 posts through which the most important historical-artistic works and news of the church will be told. The info and texts are by the parish priest who for months has already been working on the publication of a new text on the church “, describes the initiative the parish priest of San Matteo, don Alessandro Palermo.
