At 87, Don Piero is now retired, still animated, small in stature with a personality that looms large. Very sweet and very much in love with his church. One that lives in a nearby town, built in 1779, in Cesole. He showed us many spaces within, architecture full of Roman arches, along with the first stone that built this church.
I loved the keys, he let me use them to open doors, the keys were larger and heavier than my first little dog, a papillon named Colette.
He spoke half in Piemontese so I understood little, but he took us 72 steps below this church, the most impressive church in this area; to a ‘romantic, historical’ little room below, for the interview.
It was a divine trip.
