The Collodari District is pleased to announce some events related to the celebration of the bicentenary of its foundation: the blessing of a new flag, the presentation of the book “Collodari – 200 years of traditions” inherent to the first two centuries of life of the District and the inauguration of a commemorative plaque.

The Rector Don Danilo will bless the new flag next Sunday, 4 September, at 5.30 pm at the Shrine of NS del Suffragio. The new flag will replace the “old one” which will become part of the neighborhood’s memorabilia, after 25 years of honorable service on our auction: it was inaugurated in 1997 on the occasion of the 175th anniversary of the neighborhood.

After the blessing, always inside the Sanctuary, there will be the presentation of the book “Collodari – 200 years of traditions” which traces the first two centuries of the district’s history. The Mayor Carlo Gandolfo, the rector Don Danilo, the president Tiberio Picasso, our Maria Grazia Terrile and Riccardo Ferrarini Finetti, editors of the book will speak. Copies will be available for distribution.
Friends from other districts, our supporters and supporters, citizens are invited to participate. A small refreshment in the churchyard of the Sanctuary will close in the afternoon.
The inauguration of the commemorative plaque, located near the iron bridge over the Recco stream, will take place on 7 September at 9.30, immediately after the flag hoisting.
