Following Patricia Gray latest great Post I like to add news on the Italian version
Public places and monuments in major cities will be in the dark.
Many Hotels have also adhered to "the Hour" and several restaurants will be even offering "cene fredde" with recipes that don't need cooking.
Venice is ready to celebrate along the Grand Canal, Florence is ready at Ponte Vecchio, Rome is ready at the Colosseo, Vatican City is ready at Saint Peter, Agrigento is ready in the Temple's Valley...
In Milan around the Cathedral (Il Duomo), in the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele, at La Scala Opera House and also at the Sforza Castle (Castello Sforzesco) hundreds of candles will be distributed before the lights will be turned off.
An hour is only a short time but it can be a very powerful
Message of Hope!
