In 2000 the UNESCO has inserted Assisi in
the list of the places that for history, importance, culture and tradition, are
ideally released by the geographical place in which they rise for being
delivered to us making of them a place where nobody is a foreign. Assisi since
then is Patrimony of the Humanity as
the human creative genius has found one of its maximum expressions, building
the St. Francis Basilica first, and enriching it then with marvellous frescos of
the most greater artists of the epoch. Assisi is Patrimony of the Humanity because
the artistic expression melts inseparably with the most sincere religious and
spiritual demonstrations of the Franciscan
Order. Assisi is Patrimony of the Humanity from when the message of peace
communicated by the artistic and spiritual demonstrations is scattered in every
part of the world with a strength never perceived before.
Paolo II has perceived the strength that emanated from the bowel of the
city, soaked with art and spirituality, delegating to Assisi the role of Capital of Peace and Dialogue, when
during meetings of prayer in 1986, but especially in 2002, he made it meeting
centre of the leaders of the most important world religions.
There's something great and powerful
contained in Assisi, it's something that brings the extremes to the
conciliation and levels the contradictions, something that in some way save us,
and that attracts us making us feel that not everything is lost.
