Pope Francis: No people is criminal and no religion is terrorist

February 17, 2017. Pope Francis has sent an important message to the Meetings of Popular Movements that is taking place in Modesto (California). The pope denounces the "moral blindness of this indifference”: "under the guise of what is politically correct or ideologically fashionable, one looks at those who suffer without touching them. But they are televised live; they are talked about in euphemisms and with apparent tolerance, but nothing is done systematically to heal the social wounds or to confront the structures that leave so many brothers and sisters by the wayside”.

Musical tells the story of a community that still lives like the first Christians

2015-11-20

In 1948 the priest Zeno Saltini decided to take care of a group of young people living on the street. It was the beginning of a project that helped more than 5,000 young people with an uncertain future.

It's also the story of a musical, "Children of Don Zeno.”

These abandoned children are from the  "Nomadelfia" community, a place where the only law is brotherhood. Today, in two communities there are more than 300 people, making 50 families that are still living like the early Christians.

FRANCA DI ANGELIS
Writer, "Children ofDon Zeno”
"Nomadelfia is a place where the mission is precisely to tell the world that 'you can do it.'"

The actors are not professionals, but they have received training from the musical's director. These young people were born and raised in Nomadelfia.

ANNA CIANCA
Musical Director
"The differentiating factor is that these people interpret something they have lived for seven days a week, 24 hours a day, for many years. This makes them become filled with energy that reaches the viewer.”

The writer and director created the show after many visits to the community. Their experiences in Nomadelfia are reflected in the musical.

Eighty seven actors took part in the showing in Rome. Through music, they hope that the message of Don Zeno can reach all corners of the world.
