Remembering the 200th Anniversary of the discovery of Antarctica, an Italian newspaper has re-proposed what has been in the mind of a group of Italian radio amateurs since 2003; a chapel at the Italian MZS Station in Antarctica.
It’s an idea that comes from the heart, an idea that we have illustrated and explained in meetings, in several schools, to politicians, radio and TV, to bishops, cardinals and no less than 3 Popes in the last 13 years.
We did try to involve the Italian Ministry for Education, University and Research (MIUR) and PNRA, Programma Nazionale di Ricerche in Antartide (Italy) as well, but nothing. The most important Italian magazines, newspapers, social networks has talked about this proposal which has been shared worldwide. It has also been taken up by some international magazines but to date, it has remained at the level of a good idea!
We do not lose heart and once again we are happy and proud to share the page that an important local newspaper from northern Italy has recently dedicated to “our” idea of creating a corner of spirituality at the Italian MZS base at Terra Nova Bay in Antarctica.
