Red wine every day to stay young - Vino rosso ogni giorno per rimanere giovani
A pair of glasses every day prevent degeneration of body cells, especially in the nervous system.

This is in line with French studies emphasizing a lower percentage of Alzheimer's disease among red wine drinkers.

GESSOPALENA - The tryptich is fine on the white pages, but date, author and name of one saint are wrong /Il trittico sull'elenco telefonico, ma sono sbagliati la data e l'autore - errato anche il nome della santa vicina alla Madonna - by Gino Melchiorre
The cover of the phone directory for the Province of Chieti shows the Madonna dei Raccomandati in Gessopalena, saying it is by Francesco da Rimini, from the 15th century and the two saints are San Lorenzo and Santa Chiara. But Francesco da Rimini lived 150 years earlier, and the saint is probably Santa Caterina d'Alessandria. The author according to another tradition may be Crivelli from the Marches region.
