WAR MEMORIES By Maurizio Zambardi

Maurizio Zambardi belongs to the new generation that didn’t live through the Second World War, but the great love for his homeland and his inexhaustible wish to know the past of San Pietro... More > Infine has brought him, after various and important publi-cations, to confront the tragedy of San Pietro as the war passed through. With horror, he has listened to dozens of testimonies of survivors; he has learned that those tragic events are to be re-membered and passed on because they can only bring feelings of peace and a repudiation of all war. As well, he wanted these accounts to help induce his fellow-citizens to love their own vil-lage all the more. San Pietro is not his ancestors’ village, cling-ing to the slopes of Monte Sambúcaro, with its medieval alleys, bell towers and old houses, but rather a modern and charming little town built on the plain, after the unavoidable, but also ab-surd, destruction by the German and Allied bombs.< Less

Wenzu often found sheep or a cow missing and fearing for his life and that of his son he reinforced his property and turned it into a strong tower. Torri ta’ Lanzun is still extant and is under the patronage of the ancient and philanthropic Military and Hospitaller Order of St. Lazarus of Jerusalem.< Less
