Navelli - One legitimate son, another acquired for the saffron homeland / Uno figlio legittimo, l'altro acquisito: questa è la patria di Falconio e Pace, by Lilli Mandara
The legitimate son is more careless than the adopted one. Navelli, homeland of the red gold, stray dogs, a lot of retired people and very few youths, the fine Santucci castle, will win either way. Falconio, the only son of the village doctor, Francesco Falconio from Ateleta and Rosa Santucci, daughter of a rich family who died during childbirth. Giovanni Pace, husband to Maria Troiani from Navelli. The mayor and people of Navelli complain they are cut out of the real economy.

Pescara - Tombstone with poetry / Una lapide con poesia
In the middle of a muddy street, an anonymous tomb with a young soldier and a poem by Gabriele D'Annunzio: «Pasquale non era se non un piccolo fante rapito in cielo dalle sue ali improvvise. Era un piccolo eroe ridente e franco, un giocoso amico del pericolo, un giovane amante della morte, che sembrava portare sempre all'orecchio il garofano rosso dell'amata, come i nostri paesani quando scendono ai convegni, presso le fonti o sotto le siepi».
