I intend to confer my complete adhesion as President of the Piemonte Region to the Committee for the display of the Holy Shroud, which has been a firm reference point over the centuries for many devoted faithful, as well as a scientific case that does not cease to incur interest and worldwide attention.
Piemonte and Torino have been for a long time the custodians of the Holy Shroud, and this reason justifies their great responsibility in hosting such a precious and historical symbol rich in spiritual values.
Recently, along with my family, I had the fortune to personally take part and participate in the last display: it was a unique, touching experience for it was shared with other numerous faithful. Apart from personal religious convictions, I believe that the valorisation of the Holy Shroud could be an occasion to re-launch the many religious itineraries that our territory offers.
President, Piemonte Region
