a better way to check on official site news is to click into archivio news,
make sure you select italiano and NOT english,
and then use google or bing translate
So with the possibility of a major news announcement coming out of Turin soon, I went poking around in the Holy Shroud Official Site (Santa Sindone Sito ufficiale, copyright Diocesi di Torino). There has been a lot of improvements, good improvements. But there are still some shortcomings. To wit
- I typed in to www.sindone.org
- I clicked on ENGLISH
- I clicked on THE SHROUD
- I clicked on NEWS AND INFO
- I clicked on SPECIAL EVENTS
I kid you not, this is a copy of the page I received. 2010? Click on the image for a larger (1214 by 727) JPG view. Or just click on SPECIAL EVENTS for a live page.

Simple suggestion. Do away with all different language versions and implement Google Translate right into the HTML of the page. I’ll do it for airfare, seven days in a first class hotel and two bottles of 95 point Piedmont Barolo. Or get a local student to do it for 20 Euro and an icy mug of Birra Torino.
Oh, there is also the Archdiocese of Turin news room. Here are the December stories, so far, as of a few minutes ago.
