December 19, 1943 …

that Sunday was bright sunshine and gaiety: the streets were swarming with people, most of which started at the church. At midday precisely the Collegiate presented an appearance almost of solemnity, so was the crowd of people. Exit the middle, people walked to their homes (about 12.30) to sit at the family table modest, humble and poor which would permit the difficult times, being rationed everything starting from the bread, assigned to each 150 grams daily, increased slightly to workers.

Will have been about 13:15 when he heard the dull hum characteristic of a formation of aircraft in flight from the southern side. It is enough to believe that no one has made a special case in this passage, now habitual and daily, but who is located outside the door of the country noted that the vehicles were unusually low and that they were signals in the form of smoke. They were spent when they returned a few seconds and the tremendous explosions shook the whole town like an earthquake while dense black smoke, combined with cloud of dust, pushed southward obscuring the air. At the same time cries of fear, screams, groans echoed through the streets, and women, old people, children ran to the door hoping for salvation outside of the country, in the countryside.

4 Cantoni by the vision that it appeared at was terrifying: the square the Collegio was expanded twice; disappeared houses flanking the left of the church with all the shops, disappeared the other houses in front of the door until St. Michael, remained miraculously intact. The everything reduced to a heap of ruins, stone upon stone. Out of the Gate of the ancient medieval tower has been deleted altogether, a bomb had hit it in full.
