In the year 1967, in the eleventh month, on the 29th
day, while he was
hunting in the marsh
of the Trasimeno Lake near the old airport of Castiglione del Lago, a man from the land
of Assisi, Marcello Ciai, had a vision that left a deep impression in his life
Born to a family of clothes-traders, the man had lost his youthful faith, and as
he sought appeasement in success, the pleasures of the world and also in the enjoyment
