The Bonfire of Liberty

Il Falo dei Gondini sup. – S. Germano C.

On the evening of 16 February, at 20 o’clock, in the rather thick darkness, the mountains of Chisone and Germanasca seem to catch fire, fireworks and bonfires break and punctuate the night.
With flickering light because alive. Of the closest you can hear the crackle of others sometimes the wind carries the smoke and the smell, muffled, you just understand.
They are the Waldensens who remember when, many years ago, a February 17, was granted them the freedom to live, first of all, and then to profess their religion. A time of celebration.
Today there aren’t any more royals to grant freedom. We have got all, tell us the modern monarchs of ragged dynasties with no crown but great kingdom.
How beautiful, though, if it came yet another great day to light a new Bonfire of Liberty.
