  • Don Primo Mazzolari (Cremona 1890-Bozzolo 1959)
    Pope Francis at the tomb of Don Mazzolari, archpriest of Bozzolo, the priest whose books were withdrawn from the Holy Office. The same trip on which he also pays homage to Don Milani, the Prior of Barbiana. An attentive and sincere reflection that connects Pope Francis and the unheard prophet Don Mazzolari. The sensibility of two men coming from the suburbs, who, at different moments in history, knew how to open the windows and doors of the Church to the Spirit that constantly renews and transforms it.
  • Don Primo Mazzolari - (Cremona 1890-Bozzolo 1959)
    Papa Francesco sulla tomba di Don Mazzolari, arciprete di Bozzolo, il sacerdote i cui libri furono ritirati dal Sant'Uffizio. Nello stesso viaggio in cui rende omaggio anche a Don Milani, priore di Barbiana. Un'attenta e sentita riflessione che accomuna Papa Francesco e il profeta inascoltato, Don Mazzolari. La sensibilità di due uomini venuti dalle periferie che in momenti storici diversi hanno saputo aprire le porte e le finestre della Chiesa allo Spirito che costantemente la rinnova e la trasforma.
