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

  1. I typed in to
  2. I clicked on ENGLISH
  3. I clicked on THE SHROUD

    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.
