SURREAL SITUATION, CHURCH IN TOURIST and INTERNATIONAL AREA WITH within VILLAGE HURON-I enter this church and I find a group of 7-8 seniors to pray. As soon as I notice they ALL turn around (so they were very focused in prayer!) and they point their eyes at me like lanterns. It's well, I ignore them and go to visit the threshold of the sacristy, Apertissima, wide open, showing tombstones with the names of the benefactors of the church, including members of the Illustrious families Mylius and Vigoni, industrialists, politicians, explorers and benefactors. Immediately a woman asks me if I try someone, I repeat that several times that I just want to visit. Then comes a man with a chubby face, a celestine T-shirt and a gray beard and tells me that I can't stay here and that I have to leave. To my say that that is an area completely open to the public and that there are tombstones to see, and that the locality of Loveno is historical and to visit (which certainly the Lord ignores), he speaks of "our church" and "we decide" , he also puts a hand on my back trying to lead me away. After hearing such bestial bullshit, I have to argue loudly in the church, since I was undergoing a real harassment by a stranger. In the end the Lord Desistes, I "allows" to see, but then... And it makes the "go away" gesture. After a new discussion about my freedom to go wherever I want, this "boss" of his little world returns to hands folded on the benches. I REMEMBER that near there are two important INTERNATIONAL CENTERS of business and cultural meetings such as Villa Vigoni and Villa Garovaglio-Ricci. Notice the parish priest, the mayor Michele Spaggiari or those of duty: it would be better to warn the group of afternoon prayer of this church that Loveno and his church are not the property of those 7-8 old people, and that there MAY also be visitors or tourists Unknown. I dare not think what happened if in my place there had been a visitor of African ethnicity.
The landmark visit of Loveno is the Church of Santi Lorenzo e Agnese, of ancient Foundation, established as a parish in 1641, reflecting the substantial rank of the village, and rebuilt in Baroque style in 1738. Retrieved from "discovering the Tremezzina" (Francis Salazar, Edizioni New Press 2017).
