In Pontremoli no bonfires but the dead are remembered – Chronicle

If the patron saint’s bonfire is not done out of respect for the anti-covid rules, the light can come from the memories of those who left us. And there are many: 158 in 2020 and 10 this year. Ghosts of melancholy haunt the souls of those who remain, steeped in nostalgia. But remembrance can bring peace. This is why the Municipality has dedicated the celebration of the Patron Saint to the victims of the covid. “Today more than ever we must ask the Patron Saint to look at us with a benevolent eye – says Baracchini -, turn our attention to him and commit ourselves, each one as much as possible, to the reconstruction of the community and the spirit that has always pervaded it, also with those choirs along the Magra and Verde rivers for the bonfires that this year become a reminder of those who are no longer there, even among the stokers “.
