Saturday, November 5, 2016 Between Peace and War, Novello Papafava thoughts and memories on the centenary of the Great War

On the 5th and 6th of  November 2016 Frassanelle will organize a celebration in memory of the Great World War and Novello Papafava.

The need for this remembrance stems from a number of requests that we received both in the family and outside the family to give a clear participatory sign in preparation for the centennial celebrations of the victory of the Great War.

An opportunity to talk about Peace and War thinking about increasingly important events, to be repeated yearly in Frassanelle, every time with new contents and topics. This year it seemed significant to start with our territorial reality, giving the days also a festive atmosphere, as Novello Papafava did.
