On 27 May a conference will be held at the Foundation by Alessandro Martinelli on Don Silvio Franch, who died twenty-one years ago. Born in Cloz on February 22, 1932 and ordained a priest in Trento on March 14, 1959, he worked all his life for dialogue, in particular as a bishop's delegate for Ecumenism, Interreligious Dialogue and Culture. Secretary and associate to Don Silvio since 1987, Martinelli took over the direction of the Centro Bernardo Clesio (Bernardo Clesio Centre) in 2001 and of the Centro Diocesano per l’Ecumenismo e il Dialogo Interreligioso (Diocesan Centre for Ecumenism and Interreligious Dialogue) in 2008. Since April 2018 he has been the point of reference for the diocesan ‘Caritas’ charity and administrator of the Fondazione Comunità Solidale (Solidarity Community Foundation). « Preserving the memory - he emphasizes, anticipating the themes of the conference - means continuously repositioning ourselves in the now while maintaining faith in the sense that Don Silvio has always inspired in us. A lofty, profound, demanding sense of life.
