The pope will visit Carpi and celebrate Mass before this cathedral, which was reopened a few days ago, after the 2012 earthquake had caused serious damage.
Pope Francis will arrive by helicopter Sunday morning and will celebrate Mass before he meets with seminarians, religious and priests there.
In the afternoon he will travel to Mirandola. He will stop at the doors of the Duomo, but will not be able to enter because it has not yet been repaired after the earthquake.
The pope will then greet the relatives of the 20 victims of the tragedy.
At 5:30 p.m. the pope will return by helicopter to the Vatican.
